My Harshest Critic?
Someone on social media noted that we are our own harshest critic. I’m not so sure about that. There are many out there and I highly encourage them all.
Please Be Mine…My Harshest Critic
I get feedback from blog readers, social media followers, friends, haters and complete strangers.
When you’ve blogged as much as I have, you become fair game.
But honestly, I’m grateful for all of it. I happened to mention in my daily Zoom meetup with guy-knitters that I was always grateful for critiques. One of the guys I’ve known for a while noted how much he preferred the colorful Primordial Sworl Wraps over the current monochromatic one I’m making. He didn’t need permission to tell me this, but offering him the opportunity seemed to make it easier for him to say this.
And to be honest, I agree with him. While I think my current Primordial Sworl Wrap will look fine when it’s finished and blocked out, it’s not my favorite (by far) of the three.
I honestly don’t think I am my harshest critic. Others can be much more critical, but just don’t express it.
I am a better person for others’ feedback. My knitting is better. Also, my blog is better (I hope)
So today, I request any feedback for me. It can be blog-related. Personal. About my looks. How I’m perceived. Gossip you heard about me.
I want to hear it all, so please, don’t hold back.
You can leave it in comments. Send an e-mail/web form. Comment on social media. Or message me. You can exclude your name for anonymity if you’re afraid I’ll be offended. I won’t be, I’ll be grateful for the honesty.
I haven’t become a full-time sock-cranker. After all the sock work, I went back to the monochromatic, lace-weight Primordial Sworl Wrap.
I still have three more 8-row repeats to go on this. I am feeling as though I need to power through it and get it done. So I really do feel similar to the person who shared his feelings about this project.
