It was a long time coming. The scarf got frogged. There were size issues. The garter stitch dishcloth got boring and became the learn to purl dishcloth. Which 3/4 of the way in got an unfixable mistake on it – well not one a newbie like me could fix. So that got frogged. That was when the frustration at not finishing something kicked in. There were tears. Yes, needles got thrown too. Repeatedly. I had to put myself into time out to calm down. But all that practise paid off. I redid yesterday what it had previously taken me 4 days to knit. Which cheered me up hugely!
So here it is – the thing that nearly drove me loopy this weekend. No mistakes, just a few loose stitches. I bound off too tightly and it’s slightly wonky which all first knitted items should be and it still needs to be blocked. I’m going to have to gift it to my mother because I know I will never be able to bring myself to use it. I want to frame this sucker and show it to everyone who visits my house, I am just that proud of myself. Finally I can say it. I’m a knitter!
