I used to be a knitting-poser.
My gal pals and I would get together and knit while chatting, watching t.v... whatever.
I could knit.purl. row on row... and that was it.
I have no patience for patterns.
No commitment to counting.
Knitting and I were just not going to be friends for too long I fear.
And this, this bunched up pile of knitted hat was my only real 'project'.
Sure, I just invented the pattern... namely, knit two tea cozy type shapes... and stitch them together ... and flop it on my noggin.
I have to push all the extra 'bulges' in at the side - otherwise, to my husband's great delight - I have huge teddy bear ears sticking out the side of the toque.
If I twisted the hat around I would resemble a rooster - a highly adaptable piece really.
I can't even take credit for the neck warmer, (bought at a craft show).
Everyone tells me to try crochet... it's supposed to be more my style: "fast and easy".
Maybe I'll tackle that new venture in the future... or maybe I'll force myself to commit back to knitting (since the
hoarder optimist in me still has a nest full of needles and wool).
Do you stick with projects if they require more than an ounce of creative commitment?
What group are you in... the knitters or the crocheters?
