These two pumpkins are in the shelter's yard.
One of the volunteers carved them.
I think they are wonderful!
I don't know why it took me so long.
I don't know how many times I've mentioned it here,
but I had an epiphany.
Tamara, an immigrant, who works on our unit,
explained v neck shaping to me.
I finally GOT it.
For once I knit something without
Instead of leaning on the directions and the line by line that I claimed I needed,
I stepped out of my mind box and understood it all.
The way Tamara taught me, just by talking to me about it, in her broken English.....
was how I needed to hear it.
Having knit socks and done all that gusset and toe shaping, I began to think about it.
I don't know if I'll finish this child's/baby vest
but I do know this:
I can do reverse shaping and I can
knit a Vneck.
I feel ridiculously happy about this.
I realized my NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!!
