UFO : knitting : : incomplete : painting assignment
Analogies, do you remember them? Readers from the US will recall SAT's and GRE's. Those from Canada, the anti-standardized test country, might have learned about them in English class. I get to sit on the fence as very soon, I'll have lived in Canada for as long as I've lived in the US. Truth-be-told I believe in standardized testing, a holdover from my American education, Kindergarten through Master's degree.
I can attest to being a skilled knitter, but I'm still a watercolour painter who lacks confidence. Almost five years ago I started a snow painting for my sister's 50th birthday. Half done, there it sits. My excuse is that I haven't learned enough in painting class to complete it. I can honestly say I had given it my best, I just wasn't there yet. Today though, after my barns in winter class, I think I might have started to break through the snow painting barrier.
I think I have a few knitting projects as well, that fit that bill, and bracelets in my beading box... Uh-oh I hear my ninth grade high school math teacher, Miss Lahrman's, haunting quote "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."
