“please” ~ “no”

some knitters say that they buy yarn with no project in mind and wait patiently for the yarn to “speak” to them. this reminds me of michelangelo, who believed that every block of stone he carved had the statue waiting inside and that all he did was reveal it. i think i’ve had yarn speak to me during the knitting process, and i’ve definitely spoken to it. perhaps i’m doing it wrong, or maybe my yarn and i aren’t on such good terms, but it really seems to me that all i say is “please” and all it ever says is “no”.
