I feel better - Knitting mess...Knitting pledge!

No, it is not my knitting! It is from a sock in Estonia. But, I do feel like the car, and the bird (flu) is flying above us, with spring... Brrmmm My knitting is a mess. My stash is a mess. My knitting books is a mess. My patter is a mess. My organised mind has totally lost it. I think knitting in small size needles are great, a small mistake does not show.. well, it depends on the yarn. But this comes from a promise I have done to myself. I promised I would try to fight my ambitions in my private life. I would allow myself to be disorganised, doing exactly what I please, knit this, knit that, just follow my feeling, no rules, no "must be ready", no knitting for others (if I didn't want to). Ok. and no "be perfect". Especially not for others.
I would like to think that is an evolved thought. But sometimes I hear snickering from others pointing out my mistakes. So, good for them, they are just so much better than me of knitting. I definitely do not want to be best. I just want to have that feeling of knitting. And my largest fear is that I will loose it. By loosing it, I will end up with a yarn room, and my favorite past time gone. So, I guess I will entertain my blog the same way.... Or maybe this confession is still OS post stress syndrome, or pre Latvian mitten syudrome. Take care! I will.
Clicketi Click. My knitting friends coming over - to my knitting mess!
At least we will stich and bitch. That is what friends are for.

Why "mistake"? I prefer to call it a personal interpretation of a pattern! See you / Marie

Ha min mamma älskar att påpeka fel i mina stickningar. Jag brukar säga att jag lämnat det med avsikt för att det skall synas att det är ÄKTA HANDSTICKAT:) du förhåller dig till stickningen precis som jag. Jag VÄGRAR att ha en endaste en regel. Nå måste medge att just nu har jag så mycket på gång och inget inspirerar mig. Inte ens Get Knitted får mig intresserad. Hoppas det går över snart.

Can't argue with that! >Haha... jorå, på stickmaskinen hänger - sedan innan jul (oops! avslöjad) sista delen av framstycket! (dvs. halsringning och upp - garnet gick av...) till en jul (haha) tröja till maken. Nästa jul! Nästa jul! Och sedan är det bara ärmar kvar. Men nu kommer det bli mycket bättre när man blir stickmaskinsinspirerad igen!

Most crafts people in non western civilizations will make a "mistake" on purpose, since for them "only god is perfect"
And we say here in NY- if you repeat a "mistake" enough times, it becomes a design element!
