Tea message: Everlasting impact with compassion and kindness is called love. :)
How was your week? Did you get everything you needed accomplished? I would say it was a good week for me. Then again every day that wake up is another good day, right? Knitting and frogging has been happening this week in my home.
As I was frogging my Find your Fade, I was contemplating my knitting preferences. I have always considered myself a process knitting type person rather than an instant gratification knitter. I don't knit bulky weight hats that can take an hour, I knit socks that can take a couple of weeks. Yet when the frogging party started I noticed the pile of knits where yarn was being reclaimed, they all were large projects. Of course a few sock were in the mix, but primarily projects that used more than 2 skeins of yarn.
Now one could argue that maybe I just love knitting socks (and they would be right), and that because of the climate I live in sweaters and large wraps are not necessary. Maybe my brain knows this and fights finishing those larger projects as there is some knowledge it will not be worn?
Now one very large shawl that made the cut was my Ohra shawl. I couldn't bear to frog it because I absolutely love knitting it. Somewhere in the back of my mind I see myself wearing it in the few chilly evenings we have here in AZ. Plus there will be tassels on the finished shawls and how much fun are tassels? :)
Yet there is still that debate in my head. Will I ever start/finish those larger projects (cardigans and sweaters), that are listed primarily in my Raverly queue and library? Now to you...do you gravitate towards smaller projects or are you the master of 1000 plus yardage projects?
Please enjoy a song and have the best day today!
