I need some words of wisdom or at least encouragement! I am a brand new knitter…just know the basics and have made a baby hat or two. I am trying to branch out with a new stitch and pattern…I am also about to pull my hair out and throw in the towel with knitting all together! I have started this same project 3 or 4 times now, and i just pulled it all out tonight in frustration. I am so comfortable with crocheting that i feel it is just easier to stick with that and give up trying to knit. But I LOVE the things you can make with knit and the patterns and textures are so varied…
The stitch i am doing in the Knit One Below. I have the book and even took a private class to learn to do it right. But i am all thumbs and although it was going good for about 6 inches this time…I started to drop stitches and add stitches and could not figure out how to fix it. After several attempts and it looking worse and worse i pulled it all out. Now i dont know if i should try it again or not.
Please, any advise or encouragement is appreciated! Have any of you long time/advanced knitters had this problem when they first started??? What should i do???
Thanks for you help
