Things about life I learned from knitting (and crochet)

Granny starIn no particular order:

  • if something’s not working, stop, unwind and try a different approach
  • touch matters
  • even the most beautiful, complex, time-consuming design is of no use to you if it doesn’t fit you
  • plan a little, but be prepared to be flexible about the process and the outcome
  • even if you follow the rules precisely, your actual results may vary
  • it is good to give
  • it is worth paying a bit more and having a bit less to have something you love
  • having a large stash doesn’t make you a better knitter – it just means you have more yarn. Likewise, more stuff doesn’t make you more successful – you just have more stuff.
  • there is a fine line between ‘enough’ and ‘too much’, even with yarn!
  • your tension will affect your results…
