have to admit, I am NOT enjoying my current knitting project. The pattern is not appropriate for cirular needles, and had I been a more experienced knitter, I wouldn’t have chosen them (well, now I am a more experienced knitter!). I was constantly slowed down by having to tie knots to change yarns, and the back is a mess. Plus by stitch numbers were always off, even tho I left markers and checked them regularly (how can you lose stitches on circular needles?) In addition, when I did a swatch and got a gauge, it was different than the pattern called for. So I made adjustments. Well, doncha know that now that I’ve knitted about half of it, I checked the gauge and it’s right on the money, so the sweater may be too small!
To make matters worse, the yarn I am using stinks. It’s Berroco Quest, and I would expect much, much more from such an expensive yarn. But it unravels and fuzzes up so easily, and is slippery and either falls off the needle or becomes unknotted.
Thanks for letting me vent.
Hey, how do you do necklines and armholes on circulars anyway?
