I hate when you need to look something up but you don’t know what to put into google and you’re just like I KNOW THERE’S A WAY TO DO THIS BUT HOW DO I CALL IT
And now I’m stuck watching literally 40 minutes of really boring youtube videos.
i just need to know how to carry yarn in two-color knitting when it’s too far to carry but not too far to cut???? or should i give up and make 3 equally-sized green yarn balls???
they are called “floats” and there are lots of youtube vidoes on how to do it correctly. I hope this helped! :)
I don’t tell myself that I cant start a new project. I knit what I want, when I want. Sure I have a large WIP pile, because just like every knitter ever, I have a short attention span with some projects. There have been countless frogged or trashed projects that I just decided to quit on. If I have no other desire to knit something, other than having it finished, what is the point of knitting it at all? Knitting is about making what you enjoy making, creating whatever makes you feel good or fulfilled or in some way makes that emptiness inside you seem less. In my case, I knit things for other people and hardly ever finish projects made for myself. It makes me feel appreciated when someone accepts one of my gifts. Yes, Its very little gratitude for the time and skill put into it, but even this small amount of positive human interaction is enough to make me feel better for a short time. I go so far as to bust my ass making relatives and friends things that they want without charging them a dime.
I wish I could say no, stop caring, and stitch together the void in my soul like I have stitched together so many of the presents I have made for people that don’t really give a damn about me.
If mending myself were that easy, I wouldn’t be pouring my soul into a social media site to be neglected, forgotten, or deleted.
