Guess what? Guess what? I learned how to cast on! I learned how to do the knit stitch! And it seems like every 6-8 rows that I knit, I end up having to rip some back out – so now I have mastered getting it back on the needle after I rip a bunch out!
It’s just a practice piece, so why am I so worried about mistakes? I guess I’m afraid my teacher will crack down on me and give me a bad grade. Wait. I’m not getting grades in this class? Really? Well, I don’t care. I want to do it right, without having to rip it out over and over again!
