Fear not your knitting
Is it silly to be scared to try new knitting techniques? Maybe, but I was terrified of entrelac before I actually tried it, now I get it and I lurve it! I'm making Quant, but a smaller version using sock yarn, my beloved Panda Cotton in Sable. It's a wee bit hard to see the entrelac squares, but I love it anyway!
Oooh, I finished a sock, see:
They're for my fiancee! I'm waiting to start the second sock until I get done with Quant, I don't like to have tooooo many things going on the needles.
But back to fear and knitting. I think the fear for me comes from not wanting to spend loads of time on something and then having it come out like shite or that I just won't be able to figure anything out and I'll feel stupid. So, dear reader, what are you afraid of trying in the yarn universe?
