Silver Bell Frogged

I had such high hopes for this cardigan. The minute I saw it in the 25th Anniversary edition of Vogue Knitting, I wanted to knit it.

But I definitely was way out of my league with it. I haven't done many patterns with charts and cables. This one had 6 different charts with 4 going on at a time.

Part of me feels bad, that I gave up to soon. But the other parts says that knitting is supposed to be FUN and this project wasn't any fun for me.

I'm going to take a class on cables and chart reading at the Yarn Stash in a couple of weeks. And I want to try a couple of simpler patterns that use charts and cables. Then maybe I'll give this pattern a try again.

Now I can have the fun of looking for another pattern!

Don't worry, you'll get it. I teach knitting and you just have to take it one step at a time. I find charts easier (once you understand them)than written instructions for texture/cables. You can do it!!

Thanks Deborah. I just think I bit of more then I was ready for. But I really do like the pattern and hope to try it again when I have more experience with cables and charts
