At one time or another, many of us go through that period in our knitting life where we decide that our WIPs need to be thinned out. Sometimes there are projects that we know we will never work on again. Other times there are projects that for one reason or another, fell off our radar.
As I was reviewing my obsese pile of WIPs, I came across my Miters.
I am not sure if my heart wasn't it in it or what, but what faced me was 7 squares that were uneven and crappy. Maybe I thought I could bulldoze through these and somehow end up with a fabulous blanket. Instead I would have ended up with a blanket that I would have been ashamed to show anyone, due to all the mistakes. I made a decision. I ripped back quite a bit. I now approached these with the intention of crafting something I would be proud of and that was worthy of my time.
My seven squares quickly went down to two, but I could not be happier. I am enjoying the rhythm that comes from the garter stitch. Much needed since I have been feeling a bit under the weather in the last couple of days. So, I have been watching Lord of The Rings (yes,again) , drinking lots of fluids, and all seems right again in my knitting world.
How is everything in your crafting world?
