Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
Sir Winston Churchill
It seemed no matter what I attempted I was met with failure.
Any type of stitching.
And my enthusiasm died.
But then I picked up this book for the 1,000,000th time and wondered for the 1,000,001th time if I could possibly make something from all of these beautiful patterns...
I kept coming back to the Horseshoe Cable Socks. They were more than yummy and way out league as far as what I could attempt.
Until I tried them.
These are easy.
And so utterly beautiful (and if I have to tip my hat to Tonia who has the greatest technique for knitting these horseshoe cables WITHOUT a cable needle!)
I couldn't believe it! These were flying off of my needles!
No failure. Just complete, satisfying success.
And so now I once again have something in my hands.
And I am once again enthusiastic about sticks and yarn.
