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.
I haven’t taken the photo challenge for a few weeks, but today I decided to participate. The subject was Patterns. That started me searching inside and outside our house for interesting patterns.
