I have learned a couple things about myself as a knitter recently.
Number one, I may love fancy yarn i.e fun fur but I rarely actually use it. It just sits in a box. The plain stuff that's two dollars at WalMart gets used all the time but the fun yarn never does. This is unfortunate because I have a lot of fun yarn that I LOVE but can never find the right project for.
Which brings us to number two. Number two is that I hate patterns. Well, no not exactly hate. I like the ones that give me the basics like how many stitches to cast on for a sock. I don't like to be told how to make something. If I want to use a different stitch pattern then I will. If I don't like a color then I'll use a different one. I like basic patterns I can change into one of my own. Like for the past couple years I've been making hats to sell. Usually I use the same pattern and whatever colors I want. Sometimes I take specific orders. I HATE those orders! It means I have to do the project exactly how someone else TELLS me to. I don't like being told how to make something, when to make it and how. If you like orders, then make it yourself!
There, done with my rant. Oh, for all two followers I have (and thank you very much for following :) ) I will be having a yarn giveaway hopefully starting Saturday. This is being sponsered by 100 pure wool! Awesome company!!
