Lene gave me a wonderful present today. It's in her article for the Rheumatoid Arthritis site. It's twelve simple words that set forth a truth that I sometimes lose track of. It's twelve words that I need to remember to tell C every day. Twelve wonderful words of Truth with a capital T.
There is more right with you than there is wrong with you.
Ponder that for a moment.
Let it sink in.
It's okay, just be with that for a minute.
Doesn't that feel good?
I'm hoping it also applies to my knitting. <grin>
Today, I'm working on Florella for Crystal Palace Yarns. I get to work with this yummy Panda Superwash, but I fear that the way the little bits of color that looked so fun and wonderful in this swatch
Are looking a bit more pool-y in the actual object (likely because we're working with 191 stitches instead of a paltry 38). That would be fine, actually, except that the bottom of the wee sweater involves lace. Does the color fun detract from the lace?
or is it just me being paranoid and overly picky and forgetting that there is more right with this than there is wrong?? (What? I want it to be a PERFECT knitted sample).
I think I'm going to like the patterning in the yarn a LOT when it's in the sections of this garment that are plain stockinette ... and in the garter stitch bits. But I'm feeling kind of iffy about this lace. E'en so... there's still more right with it than there is wrong... right?
Maybe tonight I'll go knit a nice bulky hat for the fund raiser and let the folks at CPY see the pics and decide whether they like it this way, or would rather have it done in a different colorway....
