For years I've been untangling knots and winding yarn into balls - I've kind of felt a bit like a 'yarn ninja'... "Grasshopper, you must first learn to untangle before you can elegantly create loops into beautiful stitches". Ok, so it wasn't quite that bad but you can bet Mom was sitting next to me saying "You see that mistake? Take it out and start over" It taught me 2 things - 1. do my very best to NOT make mistakes and 2. Learn how to hide those mistakes with corrections on the next row! Mom wasn't nearly as much of a yarn hoarder as I am, she'd see a pattern and buy just enough yarn to make the project. I'm just the opposite, I buy the yarn and find a way to make a project. I've also learned to write my own patterns over the years, something Mom never did (you have to have extra yarn to do this!!). I have about a gazillion lovely projects or swatches that I've made in the hopes of one day making something with that particular series of loops. I am quite certain after I am put into ground my children will go through my stuff and say "Huh?? What WAS she making here??"
