Lame-ness

OK, I admit it. I failed. Failed horribly. Hating the yarn, hating the hem, hating the pocket bulge, etc. -- these were all just lame excuses. Really, what I hate is knitting under a deadline. I hate having to work on a particular project, instead of being able to go with my mood.

Congratulations to the rest of you on finishing your Rogues. They look great.

I will finish my Rogue eventually. But I will stubbornly do so according to my own timeline. Cuz I am lame that way.

Persnickety Knitter

That's ok! I honestly had to take a day off on Sunday and knit something, ANYTHING, else. I love the sweater, I love the cable pattern, but one can only take so much of a specific thing. Sometimes, just being told that you MUST knit this one thing means that you resent the item. I'd much rather you finish your Rogue and love it, rather than look at it and dispise it.

We do not say words like "failed" or "lame". We say that we are the sort of knitter who prefers to work on things because we want to, not because there is some trivial imposed deadline.

Oh, wait, it's not my classroom, I can't make rules like that can I...darn!!
