What kind of knitting needles are you?
You are interchangeable.Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every eventuality covered and every opportunity just has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and every day is a new beginning. You are good at so many things, it's amazing, but you can easily lose your place and forget to show up. They have row counters for people like you!

#1 Is it about the finished item or about the process of knitting? Some of both? Has your focus changed one direction or the other over time?
For me it is definitely about the finished item. We are always in need of knitted goodies here or for gifts, so even if I just want to knit and relax, there is a nice prize at the end.
#2 How do you view mistakes? Do you think they give your project character? Is it important to have one, as my Aunt says, because only God is perfect? Or would you rip all the way back to row 5 of your husband's finished sweater knit on size 3 needles to eradicate a mistake no one else would notice?
It depends. If it is for a gift or a customer, absolutely I frog it back and fix the mistake. For Scarlett though, I gauge (pun intended lol) how bad it is, how noticible, does it affect function, etc. and then decide what to do.
#3 Would you rather knit a project that is comfortable for your skill level, or do you prefer a challenge that requires you to figure out new things?
A challenge all the way baby.
#4 What is something you really want to make but haven't yet? What holds you back? Is it money, skill level, time, fear of the unknown or something else?
I am going to make a sweater for me. There is always something else that needs knitting forst though. And I haven't even taken the time to find the yarn I want for it. I suppose if I would get off my behind and get the yarn I could just knit on it here and there. I will have to figure out exactly which yarn I want first!

Some 3-ply Targhee dyed by Brad of WWBN in a custom colorway for me. This stuff is so thick and heavy they would stand up by themselves I think. Totally bulletproof for bed though, and of course we love the colors!
Earthy Rainbow BFL again by Brad of WWBN. Cute little capris for Scarlett.
Caramel Apple BFL dyed by me, soaker pattern by me too. I originally planned some shorties out of this, but wasn't crazy over the pooling so I decided it would work as a soaker and I wouldn't be sad covering it up underneath something. LOL. All my mama friends love the pooling though, so maybe I'm just a bit crazy.
This is some merino/silk/alpaca blend dyed by Mich/Belladonna, with bfl for the contrast. Love these capris on Scarlett!

It feels so great to see my daughter wearing almost all wahm stuff all of the time. Even most of her rtw has been either dyed or altered in some other way by me.

In other news I have finally got my room almost totally cleaned up so I can get back on track with some sewing and destashing.
OTN I have started Zaftig. I have to say though that it is incredibly boring to knit TEN INCHES of garter stitch only 8 stitches wide. Especially with a stretchy yarn on small needles. I need to get it done though so I can get started on the cups before tomorrow's knit and chat. I'd like to get familiar with the pattern so I can actually chat instead of keeping my eyes on the pattern.

I finally took the time to knit myself a pair of fingerless mitts. I decided to do Natalya and did them with some WOTA. Unfortunately I still have problems wearing wool. WAHHHH! I am going to have to make another pair in something else scrummy. Maybe Bamboo or Soy! Not sure what to do with them. Maybe I'll gift them. I also whipped up a Calorimetry the other night when I couldn't sleep. Very cute on Jordan, but it looks really funny on me, so it's hers.
