One of the key ideas in Sequence Knitting is that it is supposed to require a minimum of thought: Memorize the sequence and knit. Of course, nothing is that simple in my knitting world. I ripped out the first cast-on because I though (mistakenly) that I had made a mistake. I recast on and then ripped it again because I didn't love the colors. When you are knitting with 800 yards of fingering-weight yarn, you must love the colors!
Then I picked out these two colors from the stash. I've been looking for the right use for the red ball, which was a gift from my daughter.
I was happy with the colors but my stitch count was way off after knitting 8 rows of the 3rd attempt. So I ripped a THIRD time. I'm hoping the fourth time will go better. As you can see, I put in some stitch markers.
Cecilia of Sequence Knitting holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry (the very definition of super smart, in my book), so maybe what's easy for her isn't so easy for an English major like me!
