a knitting lesson

Gosh, there haven't been any real knitting posts in weeks.

It's not because I haven't been knitting. I've been knitting a sweater I am considering returning to its primal state. Things aren't going well.

After the unexpected success of linty oatmeal, I was willing to give this contender quite a long trial. I didn't blog about it though, because I didn't want to complain bitterly about two projects in a row. However, I've finally come to believe I'm not mistaken this time. It's regrettable because I'm almost three-fourths done and I've invested weeks of not all that pleasant knitting to get to this point.

I don't blame the pattern or the yarn because I've seen them combined to produce at least one life-affiming sweater. For whatever reason, this sweater at this time isn't for me.

I'm back to the drawing board to figure out what to work on next, right after I frog this lesson out of existence.

Okay fess up! What's the yarn/pattern! Enquiring minds want to know! or is it just toooo embarrassing? LIke Pepto pink with 6 inch ruffles?
I could not frog something, anything, 3/4 done. I'm destashing at the moment, and can't—yet—bring myself to pull the needles out of projects where I've only done 2 inches! Pitiful, isn't it?

That's either too much information or not enough.

Or perhaps it's just me. I must be nosy.
