I Can’t Knit

But that’s ok.

I’ve gotten to the age where I can accept and embrace the things that I don’t know how to do, or can’t do. I don’t need to be able to do everything, if I could get better at the things I CAN do I think that’s a better use of my time. Knitting is lovely, it seems like it could be fun, but I don’t feel like learning, or having another hobby that gets ignored frequently. I would love to just do what I’m good at, maybe make a few dollars, then spend that money on things that other people are good at.

Now that my rant is done about accepting my shortcomings (I should also say that I am a little bit lazy, and I accept that as well) I love this sweater. You can’t *buy* this sweater, you can just buy the pattern. So maybe someday I come across someone who sells this sweater in this incredibly delightful speckled yarn that I’m obsessed with. Speckles!

gorgeous sweater pattern

Correction: Thanks to Val for pointing this out – this is actually where to buy the completed sweater, not just the pattern! It’s really cute, and cheap! Buy here

  1. I think you misunderstood… The name of the pattern is “Diamond Patterned” from my understanding. You can definitely purchase this sweater online. I would never pay $24 for a pattern (way too much!) so it must be for the sweater! 🙂
