it wasn't something that I cared about enough to get upset and frog when something didn't go right, or I added a stitch or dropped a stitch. I think doing an actual project would have disheartened me because I would have messed it up the whole way and would have had to stop and start over to much. That would have been very frustrating.
Yeah, I think that's what sets up new knitters for high levels of frustration. They want to make something specific and rip out and reknit when it doesn't come out 'perfect' and just throw it all out. It's much better to learn to knit by 'playing' with the yarn and needles and learn from the mistakes instead of getting upset by them.
