Lucky, Lucky Susan!

SA_GiftThe winner of Sock Architecture is SusanKnits! Congrats to Susan!!

I LOVED reading your comments, every one got me to thinking about how much I learn from other knitters.  Folks often show me their knitting shyly, with the implication that I’m a ‘professional knitter’ so I must be SO much better…

NOT SO! I’m an above average knitter, but not by much.

We each have our gifts, we each do different things well, and other things not so well. There are a LOT of things that I don’t do so well. So many, many ways to improve, all of them fun in their own way!

For me, the whole point of knitting is threefold:

  1. to spend time with something you love
  2. to love the process and the challenge
  3. to learn stuff (when you feel the time is right.)

Most of all, my mantra is:

We don’t knit to make THINGS,
We knit to make ourselves HAPPY!

So CONGRATULATIONS Susan! Enjoy your eBook, and for the rest of you – you can find the book here!

AND – I’ll be reviewing a new book in a few days, this one for the DYERS out there!

Here’s a thought… Perhaps you’ll want to share the link to this post to that person who’s been asking, “What can I get you for the holidays?”
