A lesson in humility

Sometimes I need to step back, away from my frustrations, my self-evaluations, and my preconcieved ideas about what I “should” be doing. Ideas like, since I can knit complicated patterns, then I must knit complicated patterns. Ideas like, my self-worth is based around the successes or failures of my creative output. Sometimes I need to be reminded that a success with minimal challenge is still an accomplishmenthat, and that what is simple can still be beautiful.
