My dh and I were road tripping yesterday and saw and stopped at a lys. Lovely place and I really had to practice self-control. They had an area that people were working on projects. An older lady was helping a younger one with what appeared to be a shawl. The younger lady was getting visibly frustrated and upset. I heard the older lady say " the reason I'm an expert knitter isn't that I make less mistakes than you, it's that I fix them faster." This is my new life goal, "fix them faster"

What a wonderful attitude and a great way to encourage someone learning a difficult project.

Thanks for sharing. A good reminder to us all to relax and enjoy the process. And pass on the wonderful gift of knitting to the young ones...if they can focus long enough!

yep, my attitude has always been....if there's an error it just means 'I'm not done yet.'.... so many people seem to feel that you should never make a mistake...but that's okay, they're just not done, yet.

Good for her! Hope it stuck with the younger lady learning this lovely craft.

That was a wonderful way to encourage someone else with their knitting!

The best teachers are not necessarily the ones who 'know the most'. They are the ones who love the subject the most, and who want their students to love it, too. This woman definitely sounds to me like one of those best teachers.

So true. Don't we all make mistakes? Excuse me, design elements?

Hopefully we all learn from our mistakes, at least after a few fixes.
