You’re Doing It Wrong

Has anyone ever told you that? I’m not talking just about knitting; I’m talking about anything.

Having recently been caught short in saying something about knitting that was actually, factually wrong, I was reminded of times when I’ve heard people say (even sometimes at knit night), “You’re not doing that right.” And, God forgive me, I know I’ve thought it about a jazillion times myself (let’s not even ponder how many times that thought escaped through my mouth).

In knitting (and in other areas too), if you get the result you expect and want, then you’re doing it right, even if you’re the only person on the planet doing it that particular way. So tell the well-meaning stranger that though you may be doing it differently, you’re still getting the proper end product. Or tell them to…

Well, I’ll leave that to your imagination.
