Thanks guys for sticking with me. I haven’t checked my WordPress emails yet but, I do want to acknowledge I’ve received them and say thanks for the likes and the follows. My post have been non-existent because so have my projects and progress. I’ve been preoccupied with other things. But, I found myself jonesin for a knitting fix. I immediately recognized my hesitation came from a desire to complete present projects and start something new equally. Frankly, I’ve had nothing but hesitations in regards to my Viajante (the shawl wrap, poncho combo). A few months back when I itched to start the project I thought my color choice was brilliant, daring, innovative, and a great color enhancer for my wardrobe.
Then I did something that perhaps a less prideful more cautious and secure knitter would not have done. I showed willingly, eagerly my WIP to a relative who was not aware of my hobby. They immediately associated my color choice with the Green Bay Packers color scheme. Its not. But…, now that the idea has been introduced in my head every time I think of it, that’s all that comes to mind. I don’t like it. I feel I should have chose one color instead of three. I’ve debating on ripping it back and repurposing the yarn to three seperate projects at a later endetermined date.
Hence the desire to scrap the board and start something afresh. New project, new hopes, new goals, maybe a bit more challenging. But I also didn’t want to be hastey in my decision, especially after all the times I’ve already ripped back trying to make it perfect. But I have to acknowledge the truth about me. I don’t do well with repeats. Usually if I have to rip back it takes the wind out of my sail. Not so much in defeat but, rather due to feeling bored having to repeat a step I’ve done one too many times before.
I wonder if I chose more challenging projects would I still feel the same?
In the meantime…
Blue, red, or purple? Which color should I dive into next?
