I have always heard you need to step out your comfort zone to grow as a person & artist.
Well I am officially taking a small step in that direction. I have knitted for several years now. I am always told, " You should enter that in the fair." And I always answer with "I might just do that." All the time thinking, "Are you kidding me! Open my self up to be judged?" Today I am taking the red shawl to be entered in a fair.
Now I sell my weaving & felted works all the time. I don't know why I am so hesitant to be critiqued on the knitting. I guess because I figure if someone is buying it.....then they like it. That's all that matters. But to be judged is definitely out of my comfort zone.
I will keep you posted on how well I survive this.
Till next time.
