“When thinking about life, remember this: No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of anxiety can change the future.” – Unknown
When, I was looking at designing this beanie, I had another envisioning was going for, but that idea went to the waste side and made me sad. It was that moment, when, I was cruising on Pinterest, at that moment that lightbulb clicked over and she was being born.
These are the moments that cease my heart into the creativeness that runs rapidly. These are the insistence’s that keep me alive. These are the moments that make me happy to be apart of an amazing community. These are the moments that make me happy to be a crocheter and a designer. These are the moments of seeing many people love what comes forth in my art.
A moment and a picture can change what I love, to make my hands keep going forth into the light.
With a little picture can make something and produce a design that wasn’t there before. We are all creative people, but we have to these depths to make them alive, maybe with a different outlook to what we call life. Sometimes just sometimes, life can be that turn that you need.
Life is just mysterious in how it works, thinks and acts. You have to be willing to make that effort. Halfway is all you life ask, before those footsteps fade into dust. Sometimes it’s gone before we knew it was there the whole time. Your effort is the price. Your effort is the key to making it out, because you have to know you’re not alone anymore in the fight, there is hope and time.
This design, as you can see, opened my eyes, to what we call life. Made me think, it’s time to reach out my hand. Letting people know that there is more to life, then me. This design keeps opening my eyes, every time I take a peer at it, shaping me back to my center core. Opening my heart and mind, letting me know there is more to life then myself.
Now, let’s get into making your own opening eyes to life beanie: Jagged Ridge Beanie.
