|By adding an extra stitch to the left|
of the cable, I can leave the cable
undisturbed when I seam the band to
I won't tell you how many rows I did before I had the 'duh' moment. ("Duh Karen, just add a stitch after the cable to use for seaming'.) So I ripped it out, added the stitch and now I am a happy camper.
Then I realized this is the second time I 'tweaked' the directions for this pattern . . . and both times I had to really think about it and convince myself to do it.
Why is this? Why can't I just have enough faith in my skills to go ahead and change things without over analyzing it? It's just yarn after all. If it doesn't work out it can be easily ripped out. Hmm . . . maybe it's symbolic . . . maybe it's not just knitting. Maybe I'm just not a risk taker for anything. Maybe I am the type of person that would never go white water rafting or bungee jump off a cliff without debating it for a week. Maybe I'm over analyzing now.
What do you think? Is your knitting style a reflection of your life?
Maybe I'll go home tonight and do something really out-of-the-box, you know - like wear white after Labor Day. Just to show that I can. I think I'll think about it.
Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
