I’m so frustrated!!! :hair: Every time I try to do lace patterns–and they’re the easy ones…just like 4 row patterns with not very many fancy maneuvers!–I always wind up with the wrong amount of stitches on my needles!!! I have tried going really slow to see what I’m doing wrong–did I forget a yarn-over? Did I forget to knit two together or something else? I usually knit while everybody’s in bed, so it can’t be a distraction factor.
I want so bad to be able to break out of my “garter stitch only” mode (or for that matter, stockinette stitch, moss stitch, whatever doesn’t require increases and decreases!), but I’m getting really frustrated. :verysad: It’s worse than feeling like a total beginner, because at least when you begin, your frustration level is because you don’t know how to do the techniques. Now that I know how to do the techniques I need to work on these projects, I’m still screwing up left and right, for what appears to be no good reason! :grrr:
