Urg, I say!

As I had stated before, I had so many ideas going thru my head that I couldn't focus on one project and see it through. So... I pulled myself together and started on a beanie, because that is what I had initially wanted to make.

I started it on Saturday evening and was flying thru it and then I just started making stupid mistakes cause I wasn't paying attention to the pattern. I tore it apart and started over... I ended up doing this 3 times, just because I wasn't paying attention...

Then I finally get it right and everything and I get to the point here I start to decrease at the top and it just doesn't work. The decreases are not lining up and it's just didn't work...

It should have only taken me 2 evenings to finish this beanie. It's just a simple, nothing but knitting, beanie. Needless to say that frustration is setting in and I tore it up and put it aside for a while. I don't know what went wrong this last time because the whole thing was great till the decreases and I fallowed the pattern to the T.

So... I am moving on from that beanie to another on that I found on knitty.com. It's a very simply beanie and I hope I can make this one work.

Wish me luck.

You should have posted here before you ripped it back. It might have been something simple like needing one more or one less stitch to make the decreases work. I think we all had days like that when we started knitting and I know it is frustrating. However, it is all part of the learning process. Good luck on the new beanie.

and dont feel bad about having to take a break.

sometimes knowing when to step away from the needles is more important

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence
