Needles: 4mm Circular
Start of project: September 30, 2014
Knitting this shawl is such a struggle. The pattern is incredibly difficult. Each time I picking it up again after a break I get lost. I need total concentration and quietness and every little thing bothers and distracts me. Normally I can talk, watch TV or even read while I am knitting but here nothing goes. I need to count every stitch because it's just never apparent where I am.
I also use every procastrinaton possible, just like right now when I'd rather write this blog than knit more than the first two lines I've done today so far...
Why not give up? Pride maybe, because others have done it as well. Stringiness, because the yarn was expensive and I actually like it even though it's quite a pain to knit with. I don't know ;-)
I guess I'll just keep trying and hope that it will grow at least slowly...
