And You Get A Blanket



Yarn:  Cascade Ecological Wool
Needles:  size 10

It's nice when a plan comes together. Two really big balls of yarn. One set of needles. Practice of a tricky new cast-on method. Patience with a new pattern. Persistence with round after round after round of plain knitting. And after enough time passes, you get a blanket.

When I taught guitar lessons, I had a sign on the wall of my studio that said, "Practice. Patience. Persistence." That was the secret if you wanted to learn to play. It's kind of the secret to learning nearly anything.
