Challenges

We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve. ~ Maxwell Maltz

Earlier this year I wanted to start The Triple-Patterned Watch Cap. I saw the one’s Grace made and they were beautiful. So I started but somewhere in the cuff chart I switched the two colors, got annoyed and gave up.
So yesterday while browsing the internet I found Stranded - The Color Work Challenge at http://www.strandedcolorwork.blogspot.com/ . So I joined hoping this would motivate me and it did.
After the kids went to bed I found some black and green Paton’s Merino and started to knit. I did the Twined Herringbone edge and a couple of rows of the cuff. Then this morning after the kids went to school I sat down and started to do more and realized I had made a mistake on the row below what I was working on…I tried just ripping out just that but it didn’t work and had to rip almost two rows back. Now I am on row 9 of the cuff and found that like the Wee Aran Knit that I want to finish just this part or maybe just one more row, or one more row! The charts are still confusing me because the black squares are my green and the white squares are my black so I photocopied the page and used markers in the colors I am using to show me what I am suppose to be doing.
