This is one of those projects where the perfect is definitely the enemy of the good AND where I try to do dazzling things that don’t really align with me or my values.
Then in June for reasons I can’t even fathom, I decided that no – let’s try something much, much harder and more dazzling and selected uncia from Kate Davies book of haps – grabbed some yarn and … did absolutely nothing for months.
Tonight I started properly with the uncia and … I actually kind of hate it.
I don’t much care for the pattern, the yarn I selected is splitty and awful and if I am really honest with myself, I would never, ever wear such a thing. It is very pretty, but really is not me at all.
What I do like knitting however is my original scarf choice – despite having unravelled about 50cm of it.
So I’m doing the sensible thing and going back to making something I want to make – which is sufficiently challenging (see aforementioned unravelling) to be very enjoyable and which I will actually get a lot of use from.
Honestly! My brain sometimes!
I need to apply this ruthlessness to other areas of my life!
(Hopefully I can use the splitty yarn for this crazy herringbone scarf – at some point – after the easy as pie is done).
