Things I’ve Learned from The English Rug

by flowergirlknits

1. Small steps add up. That blank canvas can look pretty intimidating, and those stitches seem very small. Isolating and concentrating on a small area, then the next small area and the next gradually adds up to noticeable progress.

2. Color is powerful. Skillful combinations and contrasts of color can create depth and movement in a two-dimensional piece.

3. Classic design never goes out of style. Even if you’ve put it away for years and not looked at it, you’ll still love it when you pull it out again.

4. I’d rather be knitting. <sigh>
