I admire those who knit for the holidays,
I cannot join their ranks.
I will knit and do knit for others,
in my own sweet time.
I like to meander through projects,
giving soft yarn a squeeze
and admiring the stitches along the way.
Mistakes aren't a big set back.
With no looming deadline,
they can become part of the process.
I didn't always have this zen attitude.
I am embarrassed to remember
fits I threw at the sewing machine
as I tried to finish projects "in time."
Kind of took away from the finished product...
and I don't sew for enjoyment
So this hat wasn't knit as a gift.
It's just something
I felt like knitting (last month)
for no reason in particular.
