In my last post I
whined about mentioned my lack of blocking space and how I couldn’t finish Migration. Well, please behold what a little bit of patience will get you: a new cardigan that’s perfect (aside from the fact that I currently can’t do the buttons up, but that’s not the cardigan’s fault).
Lately I feel as if my patience has constantly been tested in various aspects of my life, and knitting, as I’ve discovered over and over again, helps remind us to be as patient as we can (even when you have to do a second full wet block to get the collar unpinched…) because the wait is usually worth it. Unless you didn’t swatch and your finished project turns out to fit your 6 year old niece rather than you…
Now if only I could practice patience when it comes to WIPs and resisting the temptation to frog back projects that are 7/8s done and in fingering weight….but more on that later.
