Note to Self

Dear Self,
What makes you think you can spin lace weight yarn? How much character do you think is actually a design element and how much is just terrible spinning? I know you won't abandon this project just because it is awful. You have plenty of awful projects-your Palette Cardigan for example. It is truly hideous but you love every ugly stitch of the techno colored nightmare. Will you ever wear it? Doubtful, but you will take great pride in finishing it just the same. Now that you have been able to admit that this is another dead end project give yourself permission just to have fun with all that lumpy, twisted yarn you spun and make a note to stay away from the skinny stuff until you actually learn how to do it right. Got that?
