Well, you're certainly making remarkable progress--even stitches, successful frogging and reknitting, color changes, etc. And the great thing about knitting is that it's a lot like life: It may not turn out perfectly, but you learn a lot in the process!
And by the way, not to discourage you (quite the opposite): I tend to frog every project at least 3 or 4 times before I get going good on it. For some reason, it just takes me a while to get the knitting train headed in the right direction. So although 10 times is a lot of restarting, I believe that was normal for me
, too, when I first started. Perhaps we just learn best by doing . . . . and redoing!
