Oh how I hate it. I don't think it is too hard, or complicated. I really like all the patterns you can create I just hate knitting. I think my hate is stemmed from the knitting needles. They are so pointy and get in my way, and my stitches are always falling off.

I decided to give knitting another try last night. (I never learn) It went no where. I have been working on a bright pink gorgeous easy scarf for etsy, or myself (we will see when its done) for like 8 months. I just cannot knit more than ten rows, and this is a tiny scarf, without poking and screwing up. I just frustrate myself.

I think the reason I just keep trying is that my Great Grandmother was a fantastic knitter. When she died I got all her crafty stuff (mostly knitting and thread crochet). I really want to enjoy knitting and keep her tradition alive, I just get so darn frustrated. Maybe I am just a true crocheter at heart.


  1. Have you tried circular needles or the short needles attached to a plastic cord? I have bamboo ones and I love them.

  2. no I have just tried my plastic needles. I'll have to try some different needles and see if that makes a difference.
