I'm not the sort of person to take risks. At least not when it comes to my crafts. I suppose it is because my pre-knitting craft was sewing, and if you fuck up a project, you fuck up the materials (fabric, thread, etc.) and probably have to throw it all out.
I've been playing it pretty vanilla with my knitting. Why? If I fuck up, all I have to do is frog, then I have more yarn to play with, right? As long as I don't use mohair, that is, but mohair makes me want to poke my own eyes out.
So, I've decided to take a few risks and tackle a few projects I haven't tried before. I'm going to tackle lace and a little bit of designing. I've done a lot of "mindless knitting", row after row of stockinette or a simple lace-ish pattern, but I haven't really pushed myself before. Now I need to think and maybe even do some math. I'm not even going to go into detail about what I am going to do, because if I'm going about it wrong people will tell me, and I'd like to make my mistakes and learn from them.
I hope that I will eventually have some awesome finished objects to show off. If I don't, I will tell you about my distasters.
Wish me luck!
