I'd just like some patience with knitting, that's all I ask. I try and I try and I try and I fail spectacularly every damn time. I've bought books with beeyooteeful patterns in and I've sat there and daydreamed about knitting them but that's all it is for me - a daydream. If you could buy "knitting patience" I would buy me plenty as I want to be able to go the distance with knitting so badly.


I think your work is absolutely brilliant and I have been known to wish that I was the lucky sister who received your knitting on more than one occasion.

Not being a perfectionist is a difficult skill to master - I too have frogged several rows (in tears) because it just didn't look right to me... the whole time everyone else is going "it was fine" or "it looked good to me"... I am too critical of my own work, I guess.

I'll work on being more relaxed with you - perhaps we should knit at a spa... or at least a Starbucks.


ooh, look at that yummy colorwork! i love pinks and browns together. you are a champion knitter.


Not being a perfectionnist! I don't know if I can get that skill! It obsesses me most of the time (crazy me)! My excuse is that knitting again is as much fun as knitting for the first time ;-) I'll think about it seriously, it would be a good challenge ;-)


I love it - knitting as self-awareness therapy! It's good to let go and enjoy the process, not stress on the minutaie of the project, but know that if 99% of it is right, you really can forget that tiny 1% mistake.

I applaud you for the growth in self awareness..


I'm with you. If it's not noticeable (esp on kids clothes + socks) i'll let it go. But not on a mama sweater - because then i feel like everyone can see it. Your colorwork is beautiful!


Oooh, your colourwork is wonderful! Beautiful colours


Beautiful colour combo.
