When I started this blog, I thought I would make a lot of amigurumis and only amigurumis. I think I am one of the first Indonesian knitter/crocheter who exclusively making amigurumi. I wrote in this blog for 6 years, I wrote a book. And things are different now that everybody is making amigurumi. It's too mainstream. So I quit. I lost my purpose in knitting. After having a long knitting break, I secretly decided to retired from knitting.
Till a few days ago, a lightning struck me.
Nah, just kidding. After I gave up, I no longer think that knitting and blogging are a must do job. Suddenly I am free to do whatever I want, it doesn't have to be knitting or blogging. Knitting is no longer a burden. And now, I find that knitting is fun again. Even knitting using someone else pattern (which I rarely do before). It's a new thing for me, and it's surprisingly fun.
I made a baby hat using a pattern from http://blogs.thetucker.com/knit/2011/03/27/textured-baby-hats/
