How Many Stitches ?



 
In a forum I visited recently
I found a question that intrigued me. 
" How many stitches can you complete in 1 minute ? "
 
So I took the time to consider the
variables to really measure speed. 
 
Knit or Crochet,
Yarn: type / weight,
Stitch: Type  / Pattern,
Duration:  Time needed for accuracy
(“Remember the legend of "John Henry")
 
I have a friend who teaches the art of crochet and
she tells everyone I crochet with amazing speed. 
Faster than anyone she has ever known. 
But no matter how many projects I complete,
like the old Pennsylvania Dutch saying,
"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get".
I never checked my speed. 
I just check the need
I always see dozens of wants,
needs and special projects waiting for me.  
 
So I won't check my speed
I’ll just keep doing what I do. 
It is not how fast I crochet,
it is the fact that I can crochet at any speed
and I pray I will be able to crochet
and share the love till the end of my time.
