Lately, I feel like I've been bombarded with the idea that faster is better. I'm pretty sure that this AT&T ad has something to do with it. (My husband loves this campaign. It makes me twitch.)Then over the weekend, I got an email from Craftsy with a link to speed knitting techniques.
Bigger, better, faster. We've all been conditioned to believe that's the best way. But, I'm not convinced that's always the case.
I mean really, is there anything cuter than the Fiat 500?
And what's not to like about a puppy?
Don't get me wrong, I like big.
But what's wrong with being a slow knitter? I may not finish as many projects every year as Miriam Tegels, but that doesn't mean that my knitting is any less valid. Or that my FO's are any less finished. There are just fewer of them. There's no shame in that.
We live in a world where too much of what we do ends up being some kind of a competition. I've decided that my knitting is not one of those things.
