Yesterday, a very wise young man shared some advice he had received. “You can’t just give up. You have to try something at least ten times because the firs time or the second time, you might not be able to do it. But if you keep trying – you can!” (We were practicing skipping which is not easy to do when you are headed downhill.)
Taking this wisdom to heart, I started a new shawl. I recently said I wasn’t going to knit anymore shawls but I have this yarn and I have tried at least 7 times to make it work. I am pretty sure there is just the right amount for this new pattern. I got about 10 rows in before I found the first goof. Unknit, cast on, start again. Of course another mistake was discovered, one I just could not figure out how to fix so . . . unknit, cast on, start again. By last night, I have reached the 5% mark on the pattern and I do love the way the two yarns are playing.
Happy Friday. Maybe the wisdom of Ten Times will be useful in your life too.
