Therefore, I think before I do.
I knit……..therefore, I am patient.
No, really I knit so that I can be patient. I am not, in fact, a patient person. At all. Period.
I knit…….so that I control yarn, colour, sizing and apply my perfectionistic tendencies to my projects and not to my people. Yes, my people. Mine! ALL MINE! *insert maniacal laughter*
I knit…..so that I can gift warm and cosy things to the people that help me feel warm and cosy inside.
Apart from winning a poetry competition when I was in primary school and being told that I sound, depending on the time and place, like either a politician, a diplomat or a very cheesy Romeo…….I don’t convey my warm and squishy feelings well.
That’s if I convey them at all.
If I gift you something knitted. We’re good.
If I cook for you consider youself part of a small but perfectly formed minority.
If I squee to all and sundry about the new yarn you bought me………….well….. it probably means that you’re up there with my interchangable needle set.
Speaking of which, have I ever mentioned how much I love those needles?
As I can’t find a picture of my the ever so awesome interchangeable needles here’s a picture of Jasmine appreciating yarn instead.
