My name is Jennifer and I'm a process knitter. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
A friend has, kindly, referred to me as precise knitter. (I think that in her mind knitter is one step up from nutbag but that is a conversation for another day.) I think she was trying to find a kind way to tell me I am picky but, clearly, not a perfectionist. I am a firm believer in good-enough. I will NOT even contemplate frogging 10" of sweater to fix that one small error. Truthfully, I probably won't even go back a couple of rows if it can be easily
I instead choose to say I am making "an interpretation" of a designer's pattern. I'm just happy to knit.
The irony of all of this is that I am a planner and problem solver by nature. Don't get me wrong, I read the entire pattern before attempting the project. I sometimes swatch. I have a tape measure and I know how to use it. I am very good at math. And still...
I have been knitting long enough to have had some moderate successes but let's just say I have also had some spectacular misses too. I can always count on the item to look beautiful when finished but sizing seems to be my major issue these days.
And, still, I keep knitting.
This blog is a running commentary on my adventures in knitting. The good, the bad and the funny. I aspire to actually make something that fits me, at least occasionally.
But it's a process, Knitter.
