I am not good at the preparation stage for a project. I get an idea, I get enthusiastic and I want to DO RIGHT NOW! Swatches? Practice bits? BAH! That's for other people.

I'm learning. Weaving is forcing me to change my ways. So is bobbin lace. There's a lot to be done before you get to the fun stuff. There's warp to weave, there's pricking to prick, there's bobbins to be wound. I'm finding this is extending to my knitting too, I knit more swatches. I accept it as a part of the project, not a waste of time. Or at least, I'm trying.

Winter is here, it's time for a new sweater.
