Letting Go of Old Knitting Projects

My friends, the time has come to say goodbye to the never-ending seed stitch vest, the barf green lace vest and the thing covered in so much dust, it looks like a cat’s hairball.  I don’t have a cat.

How do you frog something that’s tortured you for years?  Do you owe it anything for being in your life so long?  It ate up your yarn, your budget and your sanity.  I discovered that it’s actually pretty easy.

I’m sitting on the floor writing this whilst unraveling a lace vest that I had been working on for my Mom.  I had started it in December 2016 but since then she’s lost a lot of weight.  It would’ve looked like a muumuu on her.

I don’t feel bad about taking out those projects, I can salvage the yarn on some of them.  And I’m now daydreaming of the millionth and one WIP it can become.  They have a new potential.  I will give them that.
