What is Your Knitting?

The Holiday time of year is upon us. And, for many knitter’s it is a time to take a break from knitting. Here is something to think about while you bake cookies:images-1

Is your knitting at the quality – or skill level – you want?

“Quality Knitting” is different for every knitter at every level of skill.

Quality Knitting could be the time spent at the task. Kid, partner or chore-free-time during your day. Early in the morning, Late at night or that hour before the school bus arrives at your house.

Quality Knitting could be accomplishing even stitches. Ripping out a mistake that you cannot live with. Or finally getting the tension right on your k2, p2 rib.

Quality Knitting could be having patience to rip, having the patience to make even stitches, or having the patience to improve your skill.

Quality Knitting should be the joy you find at a craft well done. The simplistic beauty of stockinette, weaving of cables, the yarn overs of lace. Beauty that, maybe, no one sees but you. You are the knitter of your Quality Knitting. You cannot choose it for someone else and only you can choose what is right for you.

For me, Quality Knitting is improving my skill with each project I tackle. I am considered an expert knitter – but I know there is much more about the craft for me to discover, learn and pass on.

So – What is your Quality Knitting?

Happy Knitting,

Nancy
