I mentioned last week that I was honored to be one of Liesl's guest for a little Q&A series that she hosts on her blog entitled, 3 Questions. In her introduction, she put out there some questions to all about their knitting styles.
Liesl asks, " Maybe you always need to juggle a handful of projects because you are someone who likes variety in your life?". Absolutely. When it comes to my knitting life, I need variety. Many choices to choose from depending on my mood(s). In my work-life, I do best when I am focused on one thing and working it through completion. So..,maybe I need my knitting-life to be the opposite to even things out?
Another question from Liesl, "Do you knit for the final result or for the journey?". It is all about the journey, as is evident from the overflowing WIP baskets. Truth be told, WIP baskets, WIP bags, and WIP shelves. At one time, I think I was a little embarassed at what I thought my unfinished objects said about me. Did I appear scattered, all over the place, unfocused? Then I remembered why I started in the first place, simply to knit.
Then a fellow Raveler commented that she felt embarassed when someone would ask her, "What ever happened to "this project" or "that project". I say fooey to embarassment. I applaud people when they have no qualms about frogging an project when they feel the end result will not make them happy. Now, that is not to say I don't secretly envy those of you who stick to one project and see it to the end. Alas, that is just not me. Eventually I will have a finished project, but that doesn't mean other knits were neglected during the process.
It was such a treat to be featured on Liesl's blog, as I came away from it with much more than a wonderful friend. The post and her insightful questions, made me think a bit about my knitting journey. Don't you love it when that happens?
Here's to wishing you are enjoying your knitting journey, whatever your style.
Enjoy a lovely video and have the best day today!
