I'm having a bit of a craftersblock today it seems. I tried a lot of things, but none of it turned out the way I wanted it to. I drew about 20 patterns for softies, but all of them looked crap. Then I attempted making one of them anyway, which of course turned out horrible. I came to the part where I sewed on the face, and then just gave up.
Then I suddenly got the bright idea to knit! Sounds like fun, right? Except you know, I can't knit. I don't know why I figured a day like today would be a good day to try and learn it again, but I asked my mom to give teaching me another try. It's a never ending process it seems, I just can't get the hang of it! The results so far: A way too tight tiny piece of...something, with a whole lot of holes, and inconsistent knitting and purling. It looks pretty decent in the picture though, doesn't it? I guess that just shows pictures can fool you!
Is there any kind of craft you tried and tried but just don't seem to be able to do? Or one you'd love to learn? And to you knitters: How long did it take you before you were any good at it? Did you learn when you were little, or did you start late like me?
