I finished this accidental project and I really like it. Maybe what I like best is the serendipity of the whole thing. It should be a complete mess and it isn’t. Doesn’t that validate what I always say about knitting being forgiving?
No one was here to take a picture, so I used the mantle and did it myself. Yes, the mess in the background is my living room. I just wish I could say it was my studio. Someday I will have an organized house. Just for fun, check out the picture taking.
If I were the Yarn Harlot, I would discuss the idea that whenever I take a pic of me in a new knit piece, the photo suddenly becomes more about me than then garment. I need a model. My mother in law says that as she aged she was always shocked when she looked in the mirror. Me, too. I really don’t care—–until I look in the mirror. I’m trying to focus on how much wiser and happier I am.
Speaking of happier. . . . Principles of Knitting is really being re-released. Debbie Carlson sent me an email that says you can pre-order it at Amazon now. I just did. It is hardbound and under $30. Free shipping applies. This is the Bible of knitting, so I recommend you reserve a copy now. Thanks, Debbie.
