What’s My Wand?

I am, indeed, still crafting, despite what I said yesterday. Time was spent on the PixelHobby picture, placing little plastic squares onto tiny plastic pegs to create the image.

I must confess, though, I’m feeling a major transitional crisis over the concept of crafting and its place in my life.

I feel as though I spend endless hours making things, but never finishing. I feel as though none of the effort I’m putting forth is producing results. Just when I think I’m seeing the end of the tunnel on knitting rat rugs, we come up with a different size and style we need.

I feel as though the knitting must be put aside for a while, to allow me room to pursue other crafts. Maybe I can finally get past the mice on the miniature knotted rug needlework piece. Maybe I can simply put a burst of effort into the quilting. I don’t know.

I’ll not be abandoning knitting altogether. It’s still the most portable craft to take to Knitting Around at Panera, so I’ll be working on it at least weekly. Probably on socks – I still have a desire to knit multiple pairs for Gryphon and I.

The crafting content here on the blog will be fairly unpredictable while I go through this shift, but it will still be here. I just can’t tell you what form it will take until it happens.

Meanwhile, with Harry Potter on the brain lately, I found this on Sarah‘s blog, and considered it all too appropriate to do right now:

Your Score: 9 3/4″, Oak, Phoenix

You scored 36 wisdom, 27 bravery, 5 emotional, and 44 martyrdom!

Oak signifies wisdom, endurance, protection, and authority. The phoenix tail feather as your core means that you have the capability to be an extremely powerful wizard or witch and that you will defend those you love at all costs.

by all means if you don’t feel the knitting love, don’t knit. I hope you won’t abandon the blog though. I actually come here more for the rattie content. I love seeing pictures and hearing the stories about them.

OK, I’ll bite:

Arondelle’s Score: 11 2/3″, Oak, Veela
Arondelle scored 63 wisdom, 16 bravery, 15 emotional, and 16 martyrdom!

Oak signifies wisdom, endurance, protection, and authority. The veela hair as a wand core means that you are slightly unpredictable but very powerful.
