Knit a couple Pearl a couple.

I haven't made any beanies in a couple years. The ones I used to make would have the bottoms that rolled up. I have a bunch of people who want one, but dont like the rolled bottom.

Lets try this again.

After a day of crocheting me some granny squares... I have decided to try my origanal beanie again... I have worked about a quarter of it already and now I am going to ask for suggestions...

I casted on 92... Any suggestions on how to decrease... the pattern says to:

k1 *k2t knit 11*
k
k1 *k2t knit 10*
k
k1 *k2t knit 9*

and so on till I get to about 15 stitches total...

Does this seem right and if not, any other ideas, or any ideas in general?

Urg, I say!

As I had stated before, I had so many ideas going thru my head that I couldn't focus on one project and see it through. So... I pulled myself together and started on a beanie, because that is what I had initially wanted to make.

I started it on Saturday evening and was flying thru it and then I just started making stupid mistakes cause I wasn't paying attention to the pattern. I tore it apart and started over... I ended up doing this 3 times, just because I wasn't paying attention...

Then I finally get it right and everything and I get to the point here I start to decrease at the top and it just doesn't work. The decreases are not lining up and it's just didn't work...

It should have only taken me 2 evenings to finish this beanie. It's just a simple, nothing but knitting, beanie. Needless to say that frustration is setting in and I tore it up and put it aside for a while. I don't know what went wrong this last time because the whole thing was great till the decreases and I fallowed the pattern to the T.

So... I am moving on from that beanie to another on that I found on knitty.com. It's a very simply beanie and I hope I can make this one work.

Wish me luck.

New to knitting.

I only started to learn to knit several weeks ago and I really haven't gotten to far into it. I have basics down pretty good, but the only thing that is holding me back is that I am finding that it takes a while to finish a project. I also just learned to crochet and that is a much quicker medium, but I do enjoy knitting much more.

I'm just going to have to learn to have some patience and not rush it. I have so many ideas running thru my head at the moment that I can't concentrate on just one thing at a time. hehe.

Well anyways... Wish me luck and I hope I can find some help and moral support on here.

:-D
