I am the self-proclaimed queen of improvisation.
Which, this week, has been a good thing.
As I was knitting scarf number 3 last night, with a deadline of today, I discovered I had a ball of faulty yarn. My double-knit thick yarn suddenly became quite thin!
With no opportunity to purchase new wool or any time to start the gift again, it was time to improvise. Step 1 – I knitted through it.
I heard a great quote the other day. Highly paraphrasing – it was that the situation we find ourselves in is 10% the event and 90% our reaction to it.
Such an important thing to remember.
Step 2 – I decided to make a feature of the fault, that fortunately was toward the end of the scarf.
I quite like it! It’s unique – a design that can never be repeated.
Quite proudly I added my signature….
Have you any tales of improvisation to share?
