"There are many things in life which will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart. Pursue those."
It all looked so wonderful in the magazine and all stacked up in my basket but two thirds of the way up the back - it just wasn't right.I had the feeling it was going to be too small for starters. Also the colourwork was all knobbly but when I honestly looked at the modeled photo, so was theirs. I had a few mistakes too which was making me loose careful concentration. There must have been a reason this had been hibernating for so long with no progress.
I had a 'WIP assessment meeting' with my mum and took stock of what I had on the go. The mustard cardigan is back on the knitting needles, I have one sock half done, I have finished my infinity scarf and I am also revisiting my blue cascade roll neck jumper.
I mean if I could mull it over with my mum for five minutes and decide I didn't like it then it had to go. She said, "if your heart isn't in it, don't knit it." She was right, there is so little time and so many patterns I decided to frog the brown and bin the rest.
The upshot of all that lovely autumnal yarn is that I am going to give all my love to this stripy sweater instead.
