I found this quote the other day and I was all, “Man, I could totally see that quote overlaying some mountain climber. How inspirational!”
If at some point you don’t ask yourself, ‘What have I gotten myself into?’ then you’re not doing it right.
Then today, I start thinking about what kind of photo could go with it and the thought of a giant yarn stash crossed my mind – one where you’re stuffing yarn into your desk drawers because there’s no more room in the allotted basket/shelves/tupperware set of drawers/closet/guest closet. If you knit or crochet, you know what I’m talking about… It starts with a ball or two of yarn when you start out, then you start visiting yarn shops and you think, “Oh, that’d be great for a [insert knitting/crocheted object here that you’ll probably never even start]”.
So I started searching Flickr for images that I could use and found this amazing woman – my hero – knitting on Splash Mountain with undeniable proof.
The challenge here was trying to get something usable out of an image that was too small and too grainy.
