I really can’t knit

Did you know I can knit?

I can’t. I mean I know how, but I have been working on the same blanket for the past three years. Impressive, I know, what some people can accomplish in days, I have not nearly achieved. 

I have about 6 inches in length of blanket knitted. 

To be fair, I have had to start over 3 times. 2 times at my own fault, once I had a giant hole, once it fell off of the needle because I wasn’t careful and I lost all the loops that the needles go through. The time that it wasn’t my fault, my mother in law’s dog went into my room and tore it through the house, out the dog door, and through the mud. 

I refuse to give up on it now. It’s more of a pride thing than anything. I’m cool with the fact that other people could whip this out in a night while binging their favorite show. 

I do it when I can’t handle my anxiety. When I need to move but can’t focus enough to do anything worthwhile. 

This post has no point other than to say don’t give up, even if someone is better than you at something. 

I’m sorry and you’re welcome.

  1. I think knitting is such an underrated thing just because it’s commonly associated with older generations. I’d love to learn to knit. I’d love to make a ginormous blanket, because cosiness is everything. It looks so therapeutic. YOU GO GURL 😀

    • Learning is infuriating to say the least, it looks so easy! But once you have it down it’s pretty relaxing. What I REALLY want to do is make one of those giant chunky blankets with the huge wool… maybe in 10 years when I’m FINALLY done with this blanket.😂 but you should totally give it a shot, I figured it out from watching YouTube videos!
