The Seven Ages of Knitting

It’s an emotional journey.

You’ve probably all heard of Shakespeare’s ‘Seven Ages of Man’, but did you know that knitting has seven phases too? It’s true. And it’s just as much of an emotional journey.

Stage 1: Temptation

Ooh, what’s that you’ve got there? Knitting, eh? How interesting!

 

Stage 2: Enthusiasm

Yes, I’d love to try it. I’m buying all the things, right now!

 

Stage 3: Excitement

I’m doing it. Look, I’m actually doing it. Hey, you there – I’M DOING IT!

 

Stage 4: Denial

It’ll be fine. That hole’s supposed to be there. Honest!

 

Stage 5: Despair

IT’S ALL GONE WRONG!

 

Stage 5 and a bit: Anger

Who’s idea was this? This is a stupid hobby.

 

Stage 5 and a bit more: Hope

Clearly, it’s ruined. It’s no good, I’m binning it. I’m never doing it again! What do you mean, it can be fixed?

 

Stage 6: Relief

I’m back on track. Why did I doubt myself, this is great!

 

Stage 7: Achievement

I did it! Look, I actually did it. Hey, you there – I DID IT!
