Awww I did too....
I think it's so neat when people cry when they want to.

I'll get there right along with you. I'm exactly where you are now. In a few months we'll look back at these posts and laugh. Keep going! We'll get there! :XX:

Seriously, that's how it is. I said to her over the weekend, "Now, Francesca, there's no need to show Auntie and Uncle your monkey."

you will be fine. just stick with it. all great advice in the posts before me.
I started in Dec '04. I threw my needles down a few times, swore at the cat just for walking in the room a few times (sorry kitty :(), and almost gave up many times. it took me 4 months to do a purl stitch, I just COULDN'T get the hang of it. now I love knitting it so much I can't go a day without a few stitches and am knitting for everyone on our Christmas list. I saved my very first piece, a garter stitch scarf made with Lion Homespun that's uneven and tangled and knotted and varies in width from 3" to 7" (unintentional) just to remind myself that I can improve at stuff if I stick to it.

From what I've figured out, knitting has nothing to do with talent and everything to do with patience.

I learned to knit back in February because I was too sick to do homework, and I ended up making this hideous lop-sided potholder that I gave to my mother (she keeps it in the back of a drawer). And now I just finished my first sock!

So stick with it. Your fingers need to learn how to do it - it's all about muscle memory. You will get better!

Oh... I suspected that's exactly why you said it.

So.... do we need to find a banana for the hidden monkey?
