You have to make those mistakes, so you can get it right

Sometimes we make mistakes. But every mistake is part of the learning process. Take this loom. It's a sock loom. A few weeks ago, I bought a set of those big, round, plastic looms. I learned how to knit on them and made a few things like thick sock booties. But I got tired of needing thick yarn or double strands and wanted to try the sock loom with the smaller and closer pegs to make a less bulky sock. It's hard. I have tried four different yarns and three different ways of wrapping the yarn. I have made mistakes, pulled things off, pulled things out and had to unravel my hard work. But now I am knitting a practice sock and it's going much better. I have learned from every mistake. But I will say that if I hadn't started on those big, bulky looms first, this would have seemed too hard and I wouldn't have stuck it out. I learned a lot from those, too. It was like knitting preschool. I think of sites like Bubblews. I have tried some different earning sites on the net, and not all of them work out. Some go under, some turn out not to be quite the right fit. I have made some mistakes, learned a few things. Sometimes, it just all unravels, and you have to start over. Lots of people have started over here at myLot. They will find it easier to start over with a new site, because they learned a lot on Bubblews. That time spent there was a learning process. Maybe it was a mistake. I know that I learned some things, and even though all my work there is now unraveled, it's not so bad to start over. And we're all lucky that we're starting over together.

This is a lovely thought. I am glad to have not lost contact with the good people I met there. I was also forced into upgrading my laptop and printer due to their nonsense. I was not pleased then, but I like my new stuff now, and I paid for it all with Bubble money.

I haven't tried any of the knitting looms. I have knitted a few pairs of socks and didn't like it. Used double pointed needles for one pair and 2 circular needles for the other. Next, I'm going to try to crochet a pair. Might be easier for me to do. I have found a pattern I think will be easy enough to use.
