I admire those that can knit. I admire the beautiful creations that they produce with the rythmic clicking of their needles. I love the look and feel of knitted articles.
Problem is - although technically I can knit... I am not very good at it.
I know that with practice I will get faster and my tension will improve.
I am a thrower... and I drop my needle each and every stitch. I think the average knitter watching me would quickly become frustrated for me at the cumbersome non productive way that I knit... :( I have tried to learn continental style because as a born crocheter it makes sense to me to hold the yarn in the left hand... but believe it or not I am even slower knitting this method and end up reverting back to my throwing.
I dream of a day where I can knit myself or my family a
lovely article of clothing that will actually get worn... that doesn't
take forever and that will be done in a reasonable time frame. My slowness means that I lose patience, and *heart* and I put it to one
side eventually as a I realise that the person whom I was making it for
has definately outgrown it....
Should I persevere? Or just give up the dream that I will ever be anything other than a crocheter who dreams of being a knitter?
