The closest I’ve got to knitting lately….. May 8, 2007

Posted by Karen Elizabeth in Uncategorized.

….is getting mentioned on the Yarn Harlots blog!! I know, I’m such a dork to be excited about this. She was faced with a problem, to rip out part of a sweater and fix a ribbing problem or to just leave it, and in the last little blurb of her blog she took a line from Shakespeare. This got my attention, because I had JUST gotten over memorizing 20 lines of one of Hamlet’s soliloquy’s for my Lit class. So, I re-wrote the lines I memorized into a knitting version. I was very excited when she replied in an e-mail to my comment, and then whe I was browsing her blog again she mentioned me and another poster that re-wrote song lyrics to “whip it”!! This made my day 🙂

This is also an example of why I haven’t been knitting or posting. No time for that when I have thigs to memorize, and a little thing called graduating!! I really hope to start knitting again once finals are done, something pretty for summer as a celebration! I know there are some things in the new Knitty I have my eye on, so it may be another month before I post again…….

p.s. here is my soliloquy if you don’t want to search throuhg the hundreds of comments:

To rip or not to rip, that is your question.

Wether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer, the slings and arrows of this messed up knitting,

or to rise up against a sea of mistakes,

and by oposing, fix them? To knit, to sleep, to sleep, perchance to dream, ay there’s the rub. For in that sleep of finnished knitting other dreams may come, when we have given up this knitting, must give us pause. There’s the respect

that makes calamity of so long life,

for thy knitter themselve may stab and poke

with a double point.

To grunt and sweat under such a decision,

only to fear of other mistakes, puzzles the will

and makes us bear those mistakes we made before

thus mistakes do make cowards of us all

and thus our native hue of resolution

is sick’lied o’er with our past thoughts of knitting.

With this regard our currents turn awry, and choose our course of action.
