Knitting is a big deal for me because I’ve been trying to do it since I was 16 and I keep failing at it. I fail to finish projects and I fail to understand written patterns. I even wondered if I could honestly just be some rare breed of human on earth who could not knit.
Well, turns out, about ten years later, I figured out I can knit. It just takes a bit of patience (not my strong point) and a bit of forgiveness for small mistakes (NOT MY STRONG POINT).
I’m determined to finish this throw (using very fine 4ply yarn which means I have ten million rows to go) ASAP because a) I don’t want yet another unfinished knitting project and b) I’m slightly over the colour combo I chose for it which is another reason why stuff ends up unfinished. That’s why I’ve been pretty much absent from blogging. I don’t have time to blog! I work, then knit.
I’m also gardening, which is another thing I didn’t think I could do. Although, I’m still not sure I can because I am pretty sure I’ve accidentally killed my basil. And my nasturtiums aren’t exactly thriving (websites say they literally thrive on neglect!!). This is a work in progress…
