Often one has to deconstuct.
Often one has to deconstruct.
  • Fixing a mistake that I’ve crocheted is easier to fix than one I’ve knitted.
  • Perseverance is required. Some projects are determined to kill you, but diligence pays off. Practice does make perfect.
  • Scissors are never handy.
  • It’s no myth that cats like yarn.
  • It’s a great way to keep from biting your fingernails.
  • Watching an interesting television program while knitting a complicated project is never really a good idea.
  • Knitting experts can often give bad advice.
  • Yarn addiction is a real possibility.
  • It’s always good to have more than one project in the works. At the very minimum, I have a project to crochet and one to knit.
  • While knitting can help you reach a zen-like enlightenment, it can also make you swear and burn with rage. Damn needles! Damn yarn! Idiot knitter!
