What is holding you back?

I often have people ask me if a specific project is appropriate for their skill level. But often times I ask myself, how will you ever get to the next skill level if you don’t take leaps and try projects that might be a little more difficult than the projects you have been working on.

I know how intimidating a new technique can be, but why let it hold you back. Yarn is very forgiving and can be ripped out if it doesn’t turn out exactly as planned. And I am sure that almost everyone has scrap yarn that they can use for practice, and if you don’t then go out and by a cheap skein for just that purpose.

When I look at a project or a technique that I haven’t done I just consider it another notch in my knitting belt. It is just something new to learn.

So tell me, what is holding you back from trying new projects or techniques?
