I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times, just to be sure.
The only downside to knitting is that I can’t really multitask. I can’t knit and eat (ESPECIALLY if I’m working on something I plan on giving to someone) and I can’t knit and read… I can knit and listen to music, knit and talk, and knit and half-watch TV. Blargh lol.
