*having your son bring you a knot of a mess and asking you what he did wrong. Not to fix it but to explain how he made it.
*falling asleep knitting intarsia to wake up and realize that you did 3 inches all in one color
*trying to make sense of intarsia patterns when you have the flu
*settling on a project because you don't have the right yarn or pattern for what you really want to do but you don't know what you really want to do anyway and nothing is inspiring you at the moment.
