In continuation of the last post, it got me thinking. When did you consider yourself a good knitter? I think for me it was after I finished my first Charlotte's Web shawl. Is it when someone asks you to make something for them? Or when you're approached to teach others a specific technique? I know one thing. I'm good at knitting clapotis now that I'm on clapotis #5. Almost done!
It's difficult for me to take that step, to admit to being good at something, as you could probably tell by my last post. I took my latest painting to work and someone said "I didn't know you were a painter." I didn't either, but I owned up to it, replying "I guess I am." Thanks to all for your encouragement.
I was really good at my 10,000 steps a day plan until my recent ankle fracture. Turns out there was a toe fracture as well that went unnoticed, as when I complained of ankle pain the x-ray was ankle specific. That, and the worst rainy winter in my memory, has delayed my re-entry into 10,000 steps until recently. Today there was an opportunity to hit my favourite trail:
Maybe that'll turn into a painting eventually.
