Have you ever had that thought when knitting something, that one that whispers to you, “I don’t feel like knitting for this person anymore”?
That time when you’re knitting with frayed yarn all the time because you keep ripping it out over and again. You love the garment but somehow it has created ill wishes in you towards the recipient.
This tension increases until you dump the piece all together and vow it is all the yarn’s fault. You have just the yarn in your stash. No, don’t bother with unraveling the mess you just created first. Put that evil monster to rest.
You dash off to yarnia, a small closet reserved for your precious collection. You cheek your favorites and smoosh a few more for good measure. Your eye falls to yarn you’d forgotten all about; a sweater you’d dreamed about.
“I must knit it now!” you say. Onto Ravelry you go, you knew the pattern was in your queue.
