Problem solving + patience

The thing that I enjoy the most about making things is problem solving.  I think that is why I like making up my own little knit creatures.  This is a perfect example of it.

Starting something new

Starting something new

I started knitting one thing, changed my mind and decided to knit something else.  Using one of my many calculators I figure out the number of stitches and then try to make the thing that is stuck in my head.  On average it seems that I will knit something 4-8 times over.  I start, I frog, I start again and so on till it happens.  Trial and error.

Finally it happens.  I present my version of the humming bird that I saw in my yard the other day.
