OK. I don’t REALLY hate it.Â The part that I hate is when I spend days and days working on a hat and then I look at it and say “this is ugly” and pull it out.Â Then I start re-knitting it in a new way. Inevitably, I hit a similar spot and then pull all my work out again.
People tell me that this is the fun of knitting. Personally, I like wearing a hat and having something to show for my work.Â I don’t mind re-working stuff, but it’s a little ridiculous when you can spend an entire winter season working on stuff and have nothing to show for all the time you spent with the knitting needles.
This is my life.
Things fall apart year after year and I’m tired of picking them up. I could talk to a counselor or join support groups. But I’ve just reached a point where I don’t care about the hat anymore. I’m ready to put the knitting needles away and just call it quits.
