Sweater From Hell: Lessons from off the needles

Long-time knitters know that knitting isn't just knitting, it's a metaphor for life. In other words, what happens on the needles, doesn't stay on the needles.

The Sweater From Hell is a case in point. Every 2/3 of a front frogged or half a back is a not-so-gentle reminder of how I trip up in the civilian world. If only I had recorded that I used size 6's throughout. Or noted how quickly I decreased. Or loged that telephone number in Outlook instead of on a Post-It that's now gone missing.

See?

We all think we're just knitting baby sweaters and cute cardigans for the office, but we're really becoming higher beings. Slowly. Very, very slowly.
