The email from Knitting Daily today is about fearless knitting, so I'm thinking about my abilities and plans. Am I fearless? Well, yes, actually. When I look at all of the gorgeous work out there, I don't think "I'll never do that" or "I can't do that", but "I'll try that technique out after I finish this upcoming project." For example, this year I will master socks, both cuff down and toe up, make some sweaters, learn cables, and knit a couple of lace projects. Oh, yeah, I'll be crocheting some stuff, too, like another sweater and a pair or two of socks. (have I mentioned that I love socks?) I don't believe in "I can't". My kids are being taught that, too. (I'm not blinded by optimism, though - I will never be a ballerina or a public speaker. I know my limits.)
I spent my day obsessed with an idea for a sock honoring Miss Luna Lovegood. The idea won't leave my head. Where's my notebook when I need it? Maybe if I ever cleaned the house I could find my things faster.
