The only thing that would motivate me to try the Jeny again would be as a requirement for the Master Knitter's Certificate. Period.

I've seen the photos of your work. If you aren't a Master Knitter, I don't know who would be. I no longer feel like maybe I gave it up too soon, too easily. Thank goodness there are no knitting police! If knitting isn't enjoyable, fergit it.
