Eco Elements for Motivity


Eco Inspiration
One of my favorite commands to give Puddles is “up and over”. From the wee pup to the nearly 7 year old Dane, each time he hears that happy command ring out, he gathers his speed, all his might, and leaps into action!

And this time, I got him in my newest release too boot! Our first snow of the season and Puddles was in great form. Down wandering in the valley, I gave the command and his ears perked to the sound! The whole body ignited to turn towards “momma”…

I hear ya momma! I’m coming!!

Bounding up hill and a little break, because ya, almost 7. Then spying my encouraging smile, bounding once again…

The cowl “behaved” too and turned around to show the other colors as he jumped – no human intervention required ?.

So now that my “ode to Puddles” is done… for these set of photos anyway, here’s the rest of the eco inspiration for Motivity.

It’s a sneak peek on an upcoming sweater design! Yes, my “mega” class sweater from Jill Wolcott’s “A System of Grading” is still in the works. A little trouble around the arm mixed with trouble in the brain put this design “in the sin bin.” While my little grey cells rebooted, I crafted this cowl to cement the stitch repeat in my brain.

Wanting to be as close to zero waste as possible in my crafting, I frogged swatches from the summer’s yarn review to reuse the yarn into a purposeful item for our local shelter. Never fear, it got a fresh wash and blocking prior to sending. The color work and fun mirroring was a result of the desire towards zero waste for this design.
