I once told a co-worker that Friday was my favorite day of the week. Even on a day when I wake up much too early, I can feel the promise of the week-ending. If it was any other day of the week, I would be grumpy and frustrated to be so wide awake at this hour. But it is Friday and this early hour is perfect for re-starting my Sigla sweater. Yup, another opportunity to un-knit. I got to the point where I would be separating for the sleeves and decided to try it on. There was something about the neckline that seemed off. I could barely get it over my head and I do not like a tight neckline. Fortunately, AsKatKnits had added some notes about this on her project page so I pulled it apart and have begun again. I’m feeling pretty good about this restart.
I was in a staff meeting this week. The topic was mindset – fixed or growth. We had a good chat about the role of mistakes and failure in the learning process. I was in the minority, believing that each mistake is an opportunity. If I didn’t believe that, I would never complete any knitting projects. Nor would I step out and take on some of the projects I have going at work. So, here I sit, listening to Knit British, sipping a lovely cuppa coffee, and casting on a neckline that will be the lovely start of this beautiful sweater. AND, its Friday! Enjoy!
