Like most things in the world, knitting has a set of rules and conventions. Sometimes, we knitters break them. This is my knitting confession.
On Mondays, I’ll fess up to some of my own, personal knitting “no-no’s”. Feel free to join me by blogging some of your own weekly confessions or stories of breaking knitting conventions and join the linkup below.
Confession #6: I enjoy seaming.
Seaming gets such a bad wrap in the knitting scene, but I like it! I like the fact that seamed garments are made in pieces, so you get that fuzzy “new cast on” or “just cast off” feeling while still working to finish the same project. But more than that, I actually enjoy the seaming process itself. I’m not sure I can exactly explain why, but it makes me feel very accomplished when I finish a seam and it looks lovely and clean.
Maybe seaming takes a special kind of person. Or maybe it seems like everyone hates it because the complainers whine loudly, while us happy seamers are just too busy chugging away on making straight, polished seams to speak up. So I’m putting my knitting needle down, picking up my yarn needle, and sticking up for seaming. (It’s really not so bad guys. Give it a chance!)
