is said to mean an acceptance of imperfection in the world.
If so, then this scarf that I finally finished is an example of it. There are definitely mistakes in it, but I don't care. It's finished.
I did not like the yarn. It's scratchy but I am hoping that a soak in Soak will help soften it up. It is 100% cotton, but it feels like thin strips of paper. Scratchy paper.
And the pattern should be really easy, but it wasn't. That's my fault though; something easy doesn't keep my attention and I make mistakes. I swear that I frogged half as many rows on any given day as I knitted. Progress was s.l.o.w..
But it's finished and I will never make another one, and I will never use the yarn again. I was obsessed and decided to finish it before I worked on finishing my Soumak in time to take it to Ireland. I'm not sure it's possible for me to knit that fast, but I will knit and knit and knit away until I can't any longer.
Wish me luck.
