If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. – William J. Clinton
Last week I shared that I had made several mistakes in a weaving project and my decision was to go back, fix the errors, and begin again.
Now here it is Monday and I am happy to announce that I fixed the problems – it was not easy, but it was not impossible! I made the errors because I over thought the threading pattern and the process.
Up next, a quiet Sunday with some meditation, reading, and knitting.
It’s my time to recharge for the week ahead. My hope is that today will do the same for you. Happy Sunday, Gentle Reader.
In the face of the senseless tragedy, the words of Mr. Rogers echo in my mind, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'”
Be a helper to those around you today.
The hurrier I go, the behinder I get – Lewis Carroll
Last week, I beamed my warp (weavers speak for winding the warp threads on the back beam). This week, I made a valiant attempt at a tricky threading of the heddles. Attempt being the key word.
I made multiple threading errors that I should have noticed when I did my few picks of plain weave. Again, please take note that I said should have.
