Experimenting is an important part of being an artist or a musician or a parent. Sometimes we may fall flat on our faces, but to not even try new things is to admit failure before the starting gun for the race has even gone off. So today I tried a knitting technique that I'm not that familiar with. I'm not sure if I've ever done it before or not, but I want to knit a rug. I never knitted a rug before. I crocheted one once, but that's about it.
I had to start 3 times before it looked right. So if you are going to experiment, be persistant.
