View Full Version : I Must Be Improving . . .

08-02-2006, 09:34 PM
I knitted a dishcloth last night for part of SIL's housewarming gift. I didn't have to start totally over at all! I had to frog a few rows once, but was able to successfully fix my mistakes and press on. I think the only reason I lost focus was because DH and DS were nearby and I was interacting some with them, my favorite distractions. Anyhow, I guess I'm getting better! It must be clicking with me finally. Just wanted to share my minor epiphany.

I don't think it's possible to knit an entire project without frogging or at least tinking, do you? :shock: Anyone here ever had a frogless, tinkless project? :notworthy:

Good for you.......I am working on a baby sweater now and if I have to frog it one more time it's going to spend the rest of eternity as socks!

Good to know that it's normal to have to frog sometimes, if not at least once per project! I was beginning to think I'd never feel competent at this. I kept thinking that I'm an at least somewhat intelligent person, so why can't I master yarn and needles! I mean, how hard can it be? I found out and was humbled! :?? :rofling:

I don't think I have ever done a project without having to redo part of it. The socks that I am working on took me forever to figure out the short rows on the toes.

:cheering: That's great!!

I remember the feeling I got when I learned to correct mistakes. I used to unravel the whole thing and start over. Now, thanks to this site, I've learned to recognize the difference between a knit and purl stitch. Now I know how far to unravel, and how to put the needles back in. I can't tell you how close I came to giving up learning to knit before I found this site, and Amy's videos.
