About food, the saying goes “your eyes are bigger than your stomach.” I think a lot of us knitters need some equivalent saying for knitting. We have so many knitting visions, they outstrip the hours in the day we have to execute them. Should we say “our eyes are bigger than our fingers”? Okay, dumb invented sayings aside, this constant state of yearning to work on that next project can be frustrating. But, perhaps it is this very feeling that spurs us on to keep creating, that gives power to the knitting life.
Anyway, enough philosophizing. I thought I’d share some of my knitting visions today. Although the term “visions” makes them sound so lofty and sophisticated, which in my case, they’re not at all. They’re basically a pen and paper written list and the occasional sketch to go along.
