Knitters know that any time you take on a project, you'd better be ready to learn something new. That's just the way creativity works. And as a self-taught knitter, I've experienced my share of struggles over the years. (Why does stockinette curl like that? Why are my edges so sloppy when everyone else's seem so neat?)
