“Set yourself up for greatness.”
My yoga muse, @adrienelouise
, reminds us of this often during practice, as she encourages her students to establish a solid foundation for each pose *first,* rather than rushing headlong into the posture. 🧘🏼♀️
As I’ve been preparing for the 2nd run of my e-course, Swatch Master, it occurred to me that this is exactly what it’s about: setting yourself up for (knitting) greatness!
Swatching, as much as we might not enjoy it, is the solid foundation upon which we should build each knitting project. Swatching is not the boring preamble to the project we actually want to work on, it’s *part* of the project!
Swatch Master is about swatching, obviously, but it’s really about so much more—learning why to swatch, how to swatch, and how to use your swatch to create an amazing finished project. When you swatch, you really are setting yourself up for greatness—it’s a gift to future you, who will be thrilled to have a beautiful finished knit that fits.
