Knitting helps you develop patience....well, you may cuss now and then, but patience IS growing beneath the blue steam.
A girlfriend of mine made an awful pattern error in her first vest. She was too nervous about frogging it out....so, she went on and finished it. When she was done, she tied a little piece of contrasting yarn in a small bow on the error and now when she wears it and "brags" about the error we all laugh and enjoy it.
I'm not advocating this, I'm just saying...enjoy knitting....it's all about fun.
