it kind of feels like i am just waking up after a long long long slumber. for the past year or so i have not really been keeping a blog or diary, i have not been making things with my hands, two things which have been a part of me for a very long time. i guess i could get all philosophical about it and wonder about change and circles, but instead i will just say that i feel that maybe it’s time to start things up again.
sometimes i feel really frustrated at the fact that i am here in japan and not growing my knowledge and skills of all things textiles as much as i should be. i suppose it is rather difficult to try and find any kind of textiles network since i do not speak the language. but there is just so much here that i know i will kick myself for ever if i leave without feeling like i even got to experience a little of it.
i have been looking for some kind of knitting circle for a while and been frustrated by the lack of results. today i finally found a link to CHIC Kobe. they have all kinds of great sounding classes, including a knitting circle! however it seems like i’ve missed the boat for their winter semester. hopefully they will have some new classes starting for spring.
