Knitting takes patience.
I've knitted this much of this scarf three times.
Once when I realized (I'm a slow learner) that it wasn't turning out with the clearly defined stripes the pattern showed. A second time when I followed the directions correctly and the stripes were clearly defined but I didn't like the look of the stripes or the feel of the fabric.
And, a third time when I went back to my original mistake and I love the look and the feel of it.
Glenn couldn't believe that I ripped out all that work -- twice! No one in my family and few of my friends would describe me as a patient person.
But, Darby? Darby is the very canine-ification of patience.
