Have you ever started a project that you just can't "get"?
A few days ago, I started a Chevron Baby Blanket - it is a pretty straight forward knit.
There were a few stitches in it that I had never done before,
but quickly learned on Youtube.
I felt pretty confident starting out, 121 stitches cast on...
"ssk" I have done, I learned "md"...
the rest was knitting, purling and knitting 2 stitches together.
I cast on, knit the first row perfectly, at this point 8 times.
Something is happening when I turn and start row 2
purling my yarn overs, that's my guess anyway.
All of that said,
I have tried eight times and I am not sure when you are suppose to just give up.
Those stitches I had never done before,
I have done them 1000 times now, I think correctly but perhaps incorrectly.
Here's a picture of the blanket, this Chevron pattern is pretty popular now.
Leanne and I selected these colors, she does not know the sex of the baby.
I know there will be a lot of love and support here,
keep going, don't give up...
but I was hoping to have the blanket done before "it" entered high school.
I could just knit and purl, back and forth...
boring but a blanket, none-the-less...
What would you do?
