Do, Or Do Not.

“Do, Or Do Not. There is no ‘try.'” — Jedi Master Yoda

Sure, Yoda. I live in the real world where sometimes “try” is all you have and failure is a strong possibility. What am I talking about? Exhibit One, your Honor:

Almost Garter - Unfinished

I will not finish this gift of the Almost Garter scarf before Monday. For some reason, maybe concern for my recovery and lack of understanding, my caretaker-to-be has forbidden me to knit. I was read the recovery riot act last weekend. I love my mother, but she baffles me. I must comply for a few weeks, though, because I need her help. She once told me that even a good friend of hers calls her “The Warden.”

Exhibit Two? I lost at least one friend through inattention or carelessness; possibly both. Here again, I tried but apparently – inadvertently – did not try my best. This loss does not make me happy. It does, however, make me realize that there are things I need to be mindful of, especially when it comes to other people’s feelings. By the way, please do not rush to my defense. We all fall down sometimes.

There is hope for the neckwarmer, though. The brown leather buttons arrived earlier this week so it seems possible – no, likely – that I’ll get this one in under the knitting ban wire!
