better

February 18, 2009

It is true that you learn something new everyday and lately I feel like it is all depressing.  More specifically, I’ve been learning something new about MYSELF everyday.  Here’s the big one.  I want to be better than I am (at everything) but I am too scared to try new things so I will keep knitting scarves.  That’s a pretty good metaphor, but also true.  Not only will I keep knitting scarves, but I will keep knitting them in garter, seed, and stockinette stitches.  I’m not even knitting new patterns.  There is probably a lot you can do with those three stitches, like lace or cables but I will never know.
