A Bron-designed poncho! Okay. I'm waiting :)

I can't believe that, being a ballsy type, you're too concerned about those questions? Surely they aren't more than niggling annoyances?

My guess about that last one, FWIW, is that you're smart enough and clear-headed enough not to brainwash yourself into "loving" something just because you've invested time and money into it. You're bright enough to avoid that trap :)

I'm one of those people that see what I liked and didn't like about a project and "tweak" it next time. Then again, I sometimes never make it again. Same with yarn. I have begun buying just one ball of something that catches my eye at the yarn store and playing with it. Three yarns that I really *wanted* did not work up to my satisfaction and I was glad I had only bought one! I then used them for scarves or whatever. Besides Bron, this isn't like retail where you try it on and have the instant knowledge that you like it, it fits great, you love the yarn etc.... Just consider it all "experience."



Don't worry - I was being more philsophical than irritated. :) Unlike some, I really don't mind ripping out entire projects - especially when I'm sure I'm ripping something ugly in order to make something attractive down the line. I've found (at my advanced age - hurrumph!) that my first, gut reaction to a project is almost always the right one. If it stinks when I'm finished, it'll still stink 3 months later!

Lisa - good idea about taking just one ball of yarn home for a test drive. :) I need to do more of fact, I *did* with this latest Elann order...part of the reason I'm anxious for it to get here! ha!


It's Murphy's law for knitting. Two times in the last three months I ran out of yarn just before finishing the projects and it took FOREVER to recieve the extra skeins.

    ----"The power of accurate observation is frequently called cynicism by those who don't have it." - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

    ----"I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure -- that is all that agnosticism means." - Clarence Darrow, Scopes trial, 1925.

    ----"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." - Sir Stephen Henry Roberts (1901-1971)
