I am not happy right now. I'm not being productive and I'm am so frustrated I'm about to give it all up! Knitting and crocheting that is!
I've been working on these yoga socks for EVER now.
ripped out stitches 6 times (actually more if you count how many times I miscounted when I was casting on or when I cast on with the wrong kind of cast on... blah. At the rate I'm going, I'll be in my 60's before I EVER get the first sock made. I'm not even talking about a PAIR of socks either!
THEN... I decided to give myself a break and begin working on baby girls hat. She had picked out some yarn that she liked and I told her I'd make her a hat with it. OH-MY-GOSH! What was I thinking? The yarn has been a major work of pain for me. The yarn is a strange bunched up hairy thing. It's sort of like a long haired chenille only the hairs are only on one side.
One single row of hairs on one very thin thickness of thread. If I make a mistake, I can't rip it out because the hairs get all caught up and knotted. I end up having to cut the piece out and have to throw the work away! I am sooo frustrated I feel like yanking hanks of my hair out of my head! UGH! I JUST don't know what to do! I am this close (imagine my thumb and forefinger in the "pinch" position and you can hardly see any space between them!) to just putting all my knitting needles and fibers into a bag and tossing it at someone who can actually knit!
Honestly, I'm at my whit's end. I tried to think of something positive out of this experience so far and I can't come up with anything!
I'm in knitting hell.......
