My friend Melanie, and her friend Elizabeth, were teaching at a Women's Retreat this weekend in Virginia. They came up with four rules for a Knitter's Life. I've added a few more. What Knitting Rules do you live by?
A Rule for the Knitter's Life
by Elizabeth & Melanie
February 23, 2008
1. Knit all you can.
2. Don't use knitting needles as weapons.
3. Be in love with yarn.
4. Give your knitting away.
5. Some mistakes can be ignored, some must be torn out and redone- the trick is figuring out which kind of mistake it is.
6. Buy new yarn when it speaks to you, but also use up your stash- unused yarn is beautiful potential, but it's also potential moth food.
7. You will never know everything about knitting.
