Every time I see that, I watch it. However, today is the first time I noticed that the fringe is already in place on the beginning end! How did I manage to not notice that before?

Thank you Elena6565! First time I’ve seen this video. Loved it. I don’t know if anyone else can identify with our knitting lady, but the moment she sits back down with the scissors in her hand and sighs…I have felt that way. If I finish a project and either don’t have something else I’m knitting to pick up or just don’t have a project that interests me I feel discombobulated. It hasn’t happened often but as soon as I heard her sigh and look around her chair I knew! Obviously a knitter was involved in this production to capture that. Until I saw this video I never realized what it was that left me out of sorts - once or twice in my knitting life lol!

I have never seen this before. It is very cute and says a lot about the knitting passion that we have. I found myself being a little nervous about that cliff. I guess it brought out a deep seated fear I have of falling off a high place.

This is about how I feel knitting a long scarf--it never ends and drives you c r a z y !
On L O N G projets, I place a stitch marker in the first stitch worked that day. This allows me to SEE that the boring repetitiveness has actually produced a visible amount of new fabric in the day.

I am going to do that Jessica Jean! Great idea when working on a project that feels like it will never be finished!

Today I watched this cartoon again because something was bothering me. And after watching it, I remembered a wonderful poem by the wonderful Russian poet Nikolai Zabolotsky. I will give a translation and hope that it will be correct to convey the meaning of this poem.

Don't let your soul be lazy. (Title)

Don't let your soul be lazy!
So as not to crush water in a mortar,
The soul must work
And day and night, and day and night!

Drive her from house to house
Drag from stage to stage
Through the wasteland, through the windbreak
Through the snowdrift, through the bump!

Don't let her sleep in bed
By the light of the morning star
Keep a lazy man in a black body
And don't take the reins off her!

If you want to give her an indulgence,
Releasing from work
She's the last shirt
Will rip you off without pity.

And you grab her by the shoulders
Teach and torture until dark
To live with you like a human
She re-learned.

She is a slave and a queen
She is a worker and a daughter,
She has to work
And day and night, and day and night!

1958
This version is in Russian.

Не позволяй душе лениться!
Не позволяй душе лениться!
Чтоб в ступе воду не толочь,
Душа обязана трудиться
И день и ночь, и день и ночь!

Гони её от дома к дому,
Тащи с этапа на этап,
По пустырю, по бурелому
Через сугроб, через ухаб!

Не разрешай ей спать в постели
При свете утренней звезды,
Держи лентяйку в черном теле
И не снимай с нее узды!

Коль дать ей вздумаешь поблажку,
Освобождая от работ,
Она последнюю рубашку
С тебя без жалости сорвёт.

А ты хватай её за плечи,
Учи и мучай дотемна,18
Чтоб жить с тобой по-человечьи
Училась заново она.

Она рабыня и царица,
Она работница и дочь,
Она обязана трудиться
И день и ночь, и день и ночь!


Do not be afraid to fall from a height, be afraid to lose the desire to get out of the abyss. She got out of the abyss, threw out the spokes and came up with a new occupation thanks to a new tool.

Very thought provoking.
