Starting Over

So as promised here is a photo of the progress on my baby blanket.
  I really haven't gotten very far.  But I had got to the point where the yarn starts to flow and feel really good as it it creates the fabric.  Well unfortunately I was feeling that I screwed up somewhere along the line and kept trying to tell myself that I could fix it and it wouldn't show.  But it would.  It did.  So I had to frog it (rip it up to you non-knitters).  I hate frogging.  Breaks my heart to loose all that work.  But it would not have been worth it to make a halfassed blanket. 
 I've started over.  Hopefully take 2 will work out better.

Looks good to me but I am not a knitter

I just learned how to knit a few months ago...my blanket I started is not much bigger than what your pics show..and already I've sort of given up. I guess I'm just not cut out for it. I think part of it is that now I have carpal tunnel from the swelling in my hands and arms, so my hands go numb after a short time of knitting. Maybe I can give it a try again in the next few weeks while I wait for these babies!

repeat to self "it will be worth it, it will be worth it"

I've just started using Jenna's blanket again (after the tear :sniff:) and it really is worth it. I remember working on it, wondering what 'it' would be like, what it's personality would be, how they would react, dreaming of snuggling with the baby and the blanket....

The blanket represents all that 'could be' and now watching all that 'is' is just amazing. You want it to be perfect for your little bean. I understand the heartbreak of frogging, but the triumph of finishing will reward you in the end!
