I am knitting a blanket, specifically a baby blanket. I’m just wondering how one doesn’t get bored of knitting the whole thing in garter stitch. I love knitting as much as the next person, and goodness knows a project one can do without much thinking is nice, but how does one not let the repetitiveness get to them?
So far I have about an inch and a half of the blanket done, and because I’m not the world’s fastest knitter by any means, I just work in spurts, or whenever I have time for something seemingly easy and mindless I can do in front of the TV.
I’m working with DK weight yarn, so that might be part of why it’s not the quickest project, but I’m just curious as to how others get such a big project done? I’m feeling a little discouraged here.
