Hi Knitting friends,
Last week was good as I celebrated turning another year older. This is probably the first time in a long time that I didn’t fret. I’m not sure if this will be a common theme, but I shall remain hopeful. In my old age, I’ve discovered that I tend to like rules. Or rather ‘suggestions’. In knitting especially it’s good to have a well developed pattern to follow and preferrably one that has a chart. The picture above is my 3rd attempt at making Melanie Berg’s Ingwer. I was swept away by the imagery, but for the life of me cannot keep my wits about me to get into a rhythm with this pattern. I’m certain it’s all my fault as I commute at least 2 hours daily and my wandering mind is to blame. My knitting ‘mishaps’ which I am susceptible of doing. My rule of 3 means there are 3 attempts to a project before I cry “UNCLE.”
Here is exhibition of my other WIPs. June might be a continuation of finishing. I struck out with Tour de Sock.
WIP 1: Tour de Sock: Week 1
Start date: 6/2/2016
WIP 3: Wandering Sock
Start date: March 2016
Comment: wonder way to start toe-up, but I lack motivation.
So friends, What’s got your pants in a twist? How many times do you give a retry? Sometimes I find myself dreaming about needing projects to avoid the lousy project that stumps me. What’s on your needles?
