soooooo slow at knitting

This project is taking soooooo long! It's good practice, though, and I'm already much better than I was when I started.



Backstory - I recently decided to re-learn knitting after I got discouraged and quit years ago. I'm an avid (and fast) crocheter, so the slowness of knitting is driving me nuts!

I did the same thing at one time. But went back to crochetting because I could see my progress & complete projects so much faster. I will still knit a little here or there but definitely like crochetting so much more.

That project looks like it will be so pretty once it is done.

I understand! I crochet so much faster than I knit, so I get very frustrated with knitting!

Knitting is always slower. I have learned to enjoy that aspect of it.

I have several projects like that - I have a short attention span, so I get bored with long projects! :)
