Faux, my hands move a lot and Im very inefficient when knitting. Ill try some of the techniques mentioned earlier, but it will have to wait until Im finished with my current project (pictures included).

For the pattern, Ive done the original four times and dont need to reference the pattern at all. Since I made it my own I made it reversible, creating an issue with using stitch markers. So I dont think theres a problem with the pattern or my memory.

So how comfortable am I knitting? Well, I need to see what Im doing, even when just simple knitting. Ive fumbled a few times and while my wife (who doesnt knit) tells me she cant see the mistake, I can, I know what to look for to see where I should have knitted rather than purled. I can see a shift in the stitches when I inadvertently did too many adding or subtracting stitches.

I know Im never going to win any speed records, I guess I just wanted to vent my frustration at my slow speed. Heres some info on the patterns:

Finished Project and Work in Pogress 1 by FitzTML, on Flickr

Finished Project and Work in Pogress 2 by FitzTML, on Flickr

The original pattern (as seen in red):
12 stitch by 12 rows (usually 3 or 4 sets)
One sided (at least each side is different)
4 buffer rows between the lace pattern
4x4 lace pattern

My pattern (as seen in baby pink and purple polka-dot):
6 stitch by 7 rows (5 sets)
3 buffer rows between the lace.
2x2 lace pattern.

BONUS!!! Heres my current pattern (the baby pink and purple polka-dot):
CO 37 stitches
Knit 3 rows
Row 4 & 6:
K4 [k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sl-k-psso, k1] x5, K3
Rows 5&7:
K3, p31, k3

Repeat the pattern to desired length an even number of times
End with knit 3 rows then BO

I would have posted this sooner but I just found this forum recently. This is my first project I completed, self taught from books including Basic Knitting where I got the pattern(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/081173109X/sr=8-1/qid=1155337076/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-6555275-4620655?ie=UTF8). This is the Bay Side Scarf modified to use medium weight yarn. Hope you like it:
