What was this...
I'm back to square one. Row one, really. But really it's causing me no stress at all. Which has made me realize that I really am more of a process knitter rather than a product knitter. This was pointed out by a commenter on Instagram, and boy is she right. For me, it really is more about the process of tinking away rather than producing the final product.
Two days ago, I tried on my Wurm hat after finishing 7 of the purl sequences and even though I'd tried it on a few times before and all seemed fine, this time it kind of fell over my eyes. I'm thinking that the added weight of the yarn as I kept knitting really made the size problem more obvious and pushed the brim down too low. I always think I have a big head, so I knit the large size, which was apparently too large for me (even though I even knit the brim on a needle size that was one smaller than recommended). So instead of bargaining with the universe about solutions that might work, I just tore it all right out and hand wound it right back into the ball. Then I immediately cast on in the medium size so that I wouldn't get discouraged and leave it languishing. And now I'm almost back to the part where I fold over the brim.
Can you relate to this? I'd love to hear about a project that either made you realize that you're a process knitter (one who enjoys just knitting away like me) or a product knitter (one who is more focused on the finish line and finished garment). So tell me in the comments below about whether you think you're a product or process knitter and/or perhaps share an example. This contest will end this Monday, Oct 1 at noon EST and the randomly chosen winner can choose any skein of Spun Right Round in Sock, Merino Singles or Squish DK (which is what this had is made out of in the color Haunts).
