I quit knitting.
Well, I quit knitting my "SWATCH Lessons" for the Master Knitting program, and took some time off and designed the neatest Wrist Warmers, with a thumb hole and cable.
Problem is, I used the Cascade 220 Wool that I bought for my lessons. No big deal, just have to find a yarn store that sells it and pick up more in pastel colors. I've actually finished lessons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 14 ... but I'm planning on buying new yarn and doing them all again. Now that I've made a piece using all the stitches in the lessons, I'm ready to KNIT FOR CLASS!!
Not quite as discouraged now.
