What I learned While Knitting This Scarf

As I’ve written in previous posts, I love knitting and I’m always excited to begin a new project. I do have a bad habit however of wanting to start my next project before I’m finished the current one. Above is a scarf I worked on recently, and as usual, while knitting it, I was already daydreaming about choosing colors for the next. I quickly finished, and It looked nice, but unfortunately because I’d hurried, this scarf was a little too short. I set it aside for a couple of days and then decided to undo the finished end and lengthen the scarf.  When I finished for the second time, I was much happier with the results.  Below you can see the completed scarf. This certainly was a lesson in patience. Next time, I plan to slow down and enjoy the project I’m working on, before jumping to the next.

  1. Good lesson, but we are all guilty, I know I am! My rule is to have only one project going at a time. For me, this creates a focus to finish one project before beginning another. And besides I always enjoy those last few rows, seeing the end in sight. I especially enjoy putting an edging around the completed body of an item. Then I can sit back and enjoy the finished result before moving on to making something else. It works for me!
