5 dilemmas a knitter faces
What a dilemma – have you faced any of these?
Even though knitting is great for your mental health, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fraught with hard decisions sometimes – though some are harder than others.
To frog, or not to frog?
Sometimes, we have to make the hard decisions – and sometimes, that includes deciding whether a project is past the point of no return. When a project has been in the bottom of the cabinet for a year and a half and you have no idea where you left off or where the rest of that yarn went, it might be time to frog and rip it out.
Wool, or alpaca?
Is there any harder decision than which yarn you want to use for a project? This dilemma is compounded by things like color selection, fiber content, construction of the yarn, how much twist the yarn has….the list goes on and on! Sometimes, you just have to jump in and get started.
Should I sell my projects?
This is a tough question for most knitters. Some find it profitable and fulfilling to sell their finished projects on sites like Etsy, while others find the whole ordeal stressful. Deciding whether or not to sell your works, either publicly or privately, is a very personal decision. If you aren’t sure, try out selling your projects and evaluating how that makes you feel: stressed? Accomplished?
What should I knit next?
We’re all the same: a pattern wish list a mile long, a stash that could fill a swimming pool, and the burning hunger to knit something, right now. To solve this dilemma, refresh your memory of your knitting priorities. If there’s a birthday or an important holiday coming up, you might want to consider working on those projects first.
Should I get more yarn?
This isn’t even a real dilemma – there’s always room for more yarn!
