This Girl Is On Fire…

Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys

Berroco project finished, en route to RI, and the first of two skirts has been cast on.  I can tell you right now, I may have gotten a bit ahead of myself.  Simply reading this pattern brings me back to the years of preparing a recital.  The overwhelming task of analyzing each piece, translating the text, spending countless hours collaborating with a pianist…and then cementing all of that to memory.  Somewhat exciting at the beginning, but then in the midst of it all, seemingly exhausting.  That’s how I already anticipate this skirt will be.  I’m excited to begin a new project and work with a new yarn, but I am certain sweat and tears will be shed.  Perhaps it’s the way in which the pattern is written that scares me?  My brain likes:

  • Bullet points
  • Columns
  • Neat rows
  • Organized thought

I heavily dislike patterns written in paragraph form. Same way with recipes; list the ingredients and number the instructions! But every brain is wired differently and apparently this designer’s brain likes paragraphs.  I may be rewriting this one 😉 

Yes, I’m overwhelmed but, “I think I can, I think I can”.  And you can too!  Grab that pattern that scares the begeezers out of you and start.  No day but today.  Happy knitting!
