Inequities in Knitting...

I love knitting. Really I do. It is my all time favorite past time. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't knit, but I am sure that felonies, plea bargans and federal prisons would figure highly into the equation (though, as my father has pointed out, considering I am planning on entering in the criminal justice field, thoe three things already figure highly into my life, but you know what I mean).

I also love reading knitting blogs. As you can see from my links list, it grows. I check them every day (or when I have a large break between classes, several times a day that won't happen much anymore. I get my diploma in 16 days...eep), and am always wanting new blogs to read. I link a lot from other blogs, I figure that if I like your blog, and you like someone elses blog, that it must be a good blog hint hint...if you have a blog that I don't know about, comment and let me know!

But sometimes, I go to someone's blog, and I read about all the amazing things they are knitting, and I look at pictures of their projects, and I see how absolutly wonderful they are (over at January One she is knitting a lot of socks. Nice socks. Really nice socks. I have yet to get past the first inch of a cuff of socks), and then, though I felt like a terribly accomplished knitter before, I feel wholly inadequate as a knitter, because I will never be as good as most of these knitters.

I go to the SnB twice a week, and see people like Andrea and Kim and Julie before she moved to Oregon, and wow, I am just blown away. How did they get so good? Is is just practice? Or is there a knitting gene that I don't possess?

Ah well, back to reading Goodridge v. Massachusets, the to work on my newest project, my long coat with my birthday yarn! I love this yarn. I love this coat. Doesn't matter if Andrea says that I knit wierd and it looks funny. She's just jelous because I have all of the yarn and she can't get any yes, that's it...jelousy for my yarn possession...

Keep going with that coat, it'll be worth it eventually, even if you really do knit funny ;)

I feel the same about other people's knitting as you do. I feel really bad about my own when I see the lovely things others are making. I think you get that no matter what standard you are at.

Congratulations on your graduation!
