Yesterday I knit and the day before I knit and for all that knitting I have about 1 inch to show for it! And I am just fine with that.
Most of the time in life, when you make a mistake it costs you one way or the other. Drive too fast? Hello 120.00 ticket plus a visit to Traffic Court. Spend time on Facebook while you are cooking dinner? What's that burning smell..."Hello Pizza Hut, do you deliver?" Inadvertently include a red camisole in a load of white wash? Hello pinkie tydies!
But in life, when you make a mistake in knitting, the yarn is so forgiving. And it's super fun and fast to unravel the offensive item. Zip, zip, roll, roll and your yarn is in a tidy ball once again and none the worse for the experience. It is like a rewind button, no harm, no foul. You may have wasted some time which I did and did and did. At one point yesterday I was so happy to have an apron to make as a Hostess present so I could make something that I actually finished.
Finally, I figured out knit under. I knew it before and even made two of these dish rags. But I could not click again with it and I ripped and started over 4 times before I finally just got it right. Now I have about an inch of good knitting and I will build on that today in the car.
If only I could unravel all of my mistakes in life so easily!
