Overcoming the Fear Factor

From the early days as a high school stitcher/knitter I have relied on simple projects—one scarf two scarf red scarf blue scarf—that I knew I could complete somewhat successfully.

This Christmas, my friend Teresa Coles gave me a book called Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman (yes, that Tracy Ullman) and guru Mel Clark. Page after page encouraged me to Be Brave. Step Out. Do Something More Difficult Than You Think You Can Do! And so I did, and the oh-so-fabulous Doctor’s Bag is the result.

I am most proud and most pleased. And most of all, most amazed at what I really could do! (I even got an encouraging email from Mel in Australia. Gotta visit her yarn shop one day.)
