My Love/Hate Relationship with Knitting

It took me awhile to teach myself how to knit, but I finally got it.  I've got the basic knit and purl stitches down, I've knit on circulars a couple of times and I've even experimented with cables.  I love buying yarn and have lost count of the number of projects I have on the needle.

But when it gets more complex, like a lace pattern, I just get lost.  I invariably wind up with too many or too few stitches when I'm done with a row, and the thought of  unraveling stitches to try to backtrack makes me cringe.  And even basic knitting can lose its allure; I'm not a fast knitter, so everything takes me quite awhile.

However, as fall descends, I ache to knit again.  There's just something about the cooler weather that makes me want to knit.  So I've picked up a scarf project I abandoned last year.  And I think I'll spend a little time on Ravelry browsing patterns that I'll probably never knit.  Oh well, a girl can dream.


  1. I love your scarf project. I may have to dig out my needles again too.

  2. I have to say, this is a pretty easy pattern. That may be one reason why I'm sticking with it :)
