Does anyone else have this problem?
Which one? You've listed a lot...
1) Having leftover yarn - sometimes, plus all the new non-leftover stuff
2) Not able to read charts - nope
3) Not havng the required tools - sometimes, though less and less often
4) Not finding the perfect pattern - yep
5) Wanting to just knit - yep
Some of these problems will always be there - 1, 4, 5
Others will get better over time - 2, 3
Others you will have to make an effort to learn a new method/technique - 2, 4
So, as they say in the UK, 'Stay Calm and Knit On.'
