I am trying to knit a baby blanket. The pattern is easy. Cast on 5, join in a circle. Move onto 3 double-pointed needles, just like I use to knit socks. Knit one round. Then increase in each of the stitches. Easy! Ya think? So how come I ripped the whole thing out 8 times awreddy?
All I want to do is knit this
confunnit stupidhead nani [beautiful] baby blankie for my brother dem’s son. Oh, yeah, my nephew an his wife. But everytime I try do the increases, somehow my fingers end up all hamajang [mixed up], the stitches on the needos keep falling off, and I am ready to send da whole ting to da frog pond.
I think, “Eh, when did I grow double-pointed fingers?” Cuz that’s what it feels like. I’ve been knitting for years now. Shouldn’t be this hard.
K’den. Pau [finished] whining. I am going go try again. If you hear a scream from around Damascus, Oregon, it’s going to be me.
