Saturday Knit Thoughts
(suggestions so very welcome)
I used to knit with the finished product as my goal. I just wanted the joy of the finish. Lately I want to enjoy the knitting itself, from the yarn chosen to the pattern to the actual sit and knit. Sure I want the outcome to be beautiful, but I want to love the knitting process as they say. Process vs product. The same old question.
I was reading some other knitters thoughts on the debate. Then this occurred to me, what if ALONG the way you discovered some joy. Joy as in loving the cookie dough as much or more as the cookie.
I love the sightseeing along the way to a destination.
I love the gardening before the harvesting.
I love the picture taking for the posts.
There are some things, however, that never thrill me in the process:
I don't love working out, until it is over.
I don't love painting a room until it is done.
I don't love balancing the checkbook until it is balanced.
and I don't like and probably never will like studying for a test!~even though I am a good test taker......
OH and you have until 0400 to get in on the lace yarn contest! good luck
