There is no such thing as a failed experiment,
only experiments with unexpected outcomes.
[Richard Buckminster Fuller]
The most useful skill I have for knitting is unraveling without remorse. It frees me up to experiment. I’ve unraveled six experiments from this huge cone of cotton yarn. I won this cone at a knitting retreat several years ago and have been cogitating over it ever since. Now I’m trying a sweater with a texture design that I hope will look like argyle.

Thank you for talking about unraveling without remorse. I am working with a new pattern and realized that I need to unravel a couple of inches. It is the ‘without remorse’ part that it a challenge. Thank you for reminding me that one can unravel without remorse. Wearing this piece will be more fun when done right, especially without the remorse knitted into it.
