dig a hole, dig a hole
Dump all your yarn on the floor. Dump it all out. Seriously. Dump it on the floor or the bed or whatever. Then sit there for a while right in the middle of the pile looking at the colors, feeling all the fibers. Pet it. Snuggle it. Close your eyes and feel at random. Put each skein back into its storage unit one at a time, taking a few moments on each skein to love it and imagine what it could be. Look at the yarn in your hand and think of the patterns you want to knit - find one that fits. Or sit there with only a pattern in your head and try to find yarn to match it. And as you’re reorganizing and putting everything away. touch absolutely everything with love and imagination.
When you’re all through, you won’t have knit-block anymore.
I am steadfastly avoiding the blanket that shall not be named until the yarn I need to fix it arrives. Until then, it is Christmas in July!
This is the start of 1 out of 4 stockings I want to make this year. Let’s see how far I actually get.

My blanket came apart while washing. The one I have been working on for months. came. apart. 10 whole blocks destroyed.
i JUST FINISHED IT AND IT IS GOOOOOOOOONE!
I’m going to bed and I will deal with it in the morning. so I don’t torch it.
I love knitting sweaters. But I hate knitting sweater sleeves. They just drive me crazy. I’m irrationally angry that I have to spend so much goddamn time knitting two long tubes so that my arms are covered. And yet, I hate sweaters with short sleeves.
This is a problem.
I feel this. I feel this so hard.
Solidarity, my sweater knitting sister.
The struggle is real. so very real.
Go, you guys, go!

Some great tips on how to deal with mistakes before, during, and after they happen!
I especially like the last tip about letting some mistakes go. Accepting the odd wonky stitch here and there really improved my productivity and happiness with my projects!
