boldly ripping, restarting and enjoying the creative process

Today I felt moved to encourage you all, especially newer knitters, to allow yourself permission to make mistakes.  Any time we make mistakes in knitting, or our lives, we are learning an important lesson which encourages us to study more, find new teachers and experiment.  Please don't allow the fact that you might have to restart, rip out or take a time out on any knitting project that you're working on.  It's simply part of your knitting experience and we all go through it.

I once had a painting instructor that said - "Don't let your work become too precious to you" - I thought about this absurd comment (seemed to me at the time) and I soon learned that when something becomes too precious when we're being creative it can actually block or hold us back from exploration and the fluidity of our creativity.

This is something to consider if you ever get discouraged with your projects.
