So you know how knitting is all about developing muscle memory? I can knit almost anything without looking at my stitches, as long as I can get a rythm going. In most cases, if I look at the picture and the instructions, I get the idea and can get started.
Let me introduce you to why my brain hurts:
This is two-color brioche stitch from the latest Interweave Knits (which I really liked). Let me just say that this is NOT the first version of this swatch! Not only did I have to follow the instructions word-for-word, my hands and fingers just didn't know how to move that way. This was quite a workout!
It's so fun learning new things, no? ;o)
