Now, mind you, my stitches are lovely. I can follow a pattern. I know a decent number of stitches.
What I suck at is paying attention.
I try not to stop in the middle of a row. But I do. Then I get turned around. Not kidding.
Seed stitch. Knit perl knit perl. Next row. Perl knit perl knit. Right? So easy. Makes a lovely rib pattern. I frog every third row because I can't tell what a perl stitch looks like vs a knit. My wife, who can, is left handed, so she inevitably tells me to start with the wrong stitch and I inevitable lose count, even with a row counter.
I suck at gauge. My stitches are always too tight, so I have to go up a needle size.
I get a third of the way through a project and quit. I have a third of a sweater. Five one third finished scarves. One scarf I was halfway through a beaded knit and lost it in a move. That one really pissed me off because it was a) expensive yarn b) a gift for my Aunt in Law.
So, why do I knit? Well, it allows me to buy really neat yarn. It's actually relaxing at the time I'm doing it. It's something to share with my wife.
I still suck at it pretty badly
