I can’t knit. I thought I could and I really tried but I’m never going to be any good at this. Not even simple patterns. Over the weekend I tried out an easy ribbed scarf. I frogged that thing so many times it wasn’t funny. If I’d ever gotten past 10 rows I’d have put a lifeline in it but I’d mess up way before that. I kept losing count and putting the wrong stitch in the wrong place. I split that wool so bad I’ll probably have to toss it. I had some gorgeous cotton yarn from Knit Picks and I can’t knit with it. Can’t find the stitches because it’s a boucle and I’m splitting it up to pieces. Worse than that, I just got a pair of Knit Picks Options circulars in the mail. I’ve been dying to try them out because I’ve heard such good things about them. Thank goodness I didn’t get the whole set at once. I can’t do a thing with them! I hate them! I must be the only person on the planet that can’t use them. I can do the knit stitch ok w/them but purling is impossibly difficult (I was knitting flat w/them). My arms and hands hurt SO bad after trying I had to put it down. I get so stressed and tense while trying that I can hardly breathe and my jaw hurts from clenching my teeth. This is not relaxing! I’m going to get an ulcer. Can you tell I’m discouraged? I am doomed to garter stitch scarves and Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth on straights forever.
OH BOY did that rant feel good. :blooby: Now to go eat something I shouldn’t.
