My biggest challenge is knitting. It takes me a long time to get it right and my stitches show uneven tension. I prefer crocheting as it is more forgiving; however I love to see a well done knitted item by someone who really knows what they are doing

My biggest sewing, knitting and crocheting challenge is completing the projects. I like the challenge of trying to figuring out how the project would look in different materials or how to make it quicker or more efficiently, but then realize the designer really had the best ideas and materials. I waste so much time dreaming and then get drawn into the next pattern that I have a hard time completing the former project. Perhaps a sign of ADD or a distracted creative mind ?

My biggest sewing, knitting or crochet challenge is getting all my projects finished. I do not knit, but have many, many started sewing or crochet projects that I am working on at any one time. But that is just my nature. I need to feel “in the mood” to work on any one certain project on any given day. Some days I feel like working on a miniature project for a Barbie doll and some days I feel like working on a grown up person’s shirt or other item. And some days I am in the mood to work on American girl size clothes.
