Knitting reflects my thoughts and feelings: good or bad, happy or sad. If I’m feeling bad it’s reflected in my work. My stitches and tension are uneven. I tend to drop lots of stitches and the piece looks sloppy. It’s hard to concentrate on even the simplest pattern. I knit at a much slower pace and still wind up with mistakes that need to be fixed. And just like with real life you weigh your options: how noticeable is it? Can I live with? Is it with fixing?
