Issue #2: My minute attention span tends to lead to a stack of half-done projects because I want to try the next one.
Because my knitting skills are still in the beginning stages, most of the projects get started, goofed up, restarted, goofed up . . . . All in all, not a lot of progress. I do have a growing stack of dishcloths that need to be blocked and have the ends woven in; and the beginning of a scarf.
I'm working the "Feather and Fan" pattern in a soft, cotton yarn - ecru with purple and green flecks. I think I will complete the scarf in two pieces, joined at the center so that both ends will be scalloped in the same direction.
But before I got this scarf finished, I found the "Waves" pattern and couldn't wait to try it.
I have struggled mightily with this pattern. I have restarted this project at least 15 times - no exagerations! The luxurious, red "Touch of Silk" yarn to too gorgeous to waste, so it is back in a ball and waiting for me to either find a new project, or get the patience to try this again. Do other knitters have patterns that they just can't seem to get right?
