Galloping horse test...

Recently I started knitting a vest for Goofy in an attempt to try and get some warm clothes on her. As I am still a novice I made a mistake and went in search of a youtube clip to help me discover how to undo what I had done. I came across the term, galloping horse test and I am a fan.

Essentially it is that if you make a mistake when knitting if you couldn't see it on the finished garment if you were riding by on a galloping horse then dont do anything about it!!

I have got back into knitting lately as it gives me something to do while I am watching TV at night. I am not sure why I feel the need to be productive all the time but I do enjoy sitting down and watching a ball of wool become something else. I like being able to finish something and have something to show for my efforts.

Unlike a pile of washing that once done will just be back again another day or picking up toys that will find their way back to the floor again! If I left the washing and the toy tidying undone they would accumulate to such an extent that a galloping horse would definitely notice them. I guess that means I do have to do something about them!!

  1. My knitting is such that it would still fail the galloping horse test. *sigh*
