“use the good stuff” has become a kind of a mantra in the last few years for me. Like many of you guys, I’ve been guilty of storing the “good” supplies. The fabric that is too good to cut into, the yarn is too good for this project, the paper is too special. But life is too short to hold onto stuff for some (undefined) special day when we will finally find a project when we will, at last,use the good stuff.
We need to use the good stuff now, we need to bring it out, dust it off and make something with it. For so many reasons it’s a great idea. The good stuff is such a pleasure to use, it’s joyful. Colours and patterns date, and materials deteriorate over time.
So this craftalong is to encourage you to pull out the good stuff and make something with it. Take a deep breath and cast on, cut in, take apart, just make a start. And if you’ve some good stuff that it feels impossible that you could use, show it to us and we’ll encourage you to get started. And if course we want to see the end result (and hear about how much you enjoyed working with the good stuff)
