Stared knitting simple scarfs etc about 6 months ago. Just started my first pattern - a shawl. I’ve had to frog it and start over about 4 times now because I keep losing my place, dropping stitches, etc. I use a row counter and pattern in plastic with an Expo to mark rows as I go. But I still lose my place, do the wrong stitches and have no idea how to tink when doing knits, yarnovers, and togs.
Will this come with practice or is this just not for me? I knit about 2-3 times a week usually but some weeks not at all. Just wondering how long it took others to become proficient. Thanks!!
