Sometimes I’m a quitter.
When do you give in? Give up? Get out?
I am working on a test knit for a sweater. It is lovely, and oh-so-innovatively designed. I love everything about it, but I just can’t get it cast-on. Well I can, but it doesn’t look right.
So here I am, a knitter of moderate experience. Experience limited in time perhaps – but not substance – struggling with casting-on. I’ve emailed the designer. She was charming and understanding. Her work is beautiful and not for the faint of heart, so I imagine she is not unaccustomed to people quitting. But when? How long should I try?
I love the design. I like the yarn. I want the sweater. Do I quit?
When do you say “when”?
