    1. People who are successful understand the patience and perseverance that is needed to see past what seems to be failure to what will become success.

  1. I’ve felt a lot like a failure lately. I am trying to learn a new cable knitting pattern and I keep having to rip it and start over. I know I have started this thing over at least 10 times already. I am really surprised that I bothered to try it again after messing up the first time. But, I did. The biggest problem is that I am very forgetful, not remember which stitch I just did. One thing that I’ve learned through this experience is to write each step down right after I do it, this way I can keep up with whether it is time to put the stitches to the front or the back of the piece. I have made it 21 rows on this project now without having to rip it out again. YAYAY! — Here’s hoping I didn’t just jinx myself by rejoicing!

    1. The failure would be to stop knitting. Sounds like you have worked out how to conquer the pattern. One stitch at a time is the way to go.

      1. I’ve worked it out on that pattern, but not so much on another one. I made the mistake of trying another one without writing each step that I took. After having to rip out yet another headband this morning, I was very near to just taking all the knitting needles out to the garbage man. But, I will give it another go. Eventually, it will work out. Eventually, I will remember to just write down absolutely everything. 🙂

  2. I fail to be the person I want to be on almost a daily basis, but the next day I get up determined to try again, and some days I even get it right! 🙂 Failure isn’t fatal, it’s just a learning experience, the only thing that’s fatal is giving up. Great choice for an F-word, Patricia! 🙂

    1. If we were everything and had everything what would that tell us? Maybe that we are taking life for granted and not really living as we are meant to.
