Now, the question becomes who thought of this motto first, VK or me? The motto I am now seeing heading the instruction pages in recent issues of Vogue Knitting: plan, make, finish, wear has been my mantra for the last 35 years or so whether it be in knitting or sewing (my personal predecessor to hand knitting). I have always aimed to wear what I make and I do!
Did you ever hear, “Oh, Yes! I drive but I only make right turns!” or “Sure, I have my license but do not drive on the thruway.” I see it in teaching. Oh, Yes! I teach this method, or I have always taught those units. When I hear these things I ask myself, who is in control, the activity or the person?
