I certainly enjoy the process of knitting. The process of the knitting itself, the relaxation, the peace, the enjoyment that comes from just sitting and knitting, contemplating, meditating, thinking.
If you know me, you know I'm a bit of a perfectionist. And it's that quality in me that makes me care also about the finished product. I almost left the sweater alone, almost decided to ignore the glaring mistake, almost continued on. But I didn't. I frogged out the entire sweater as shown in the picture above, and I started over. And in the process I decided to knit the sweater one size smaller.
And you know, I like the second sweater so much better. So is it the process or the product that matters most? For me, I think it's both.
