Knitting and geometry

I found myself impossible to knit conventional garment - I don't have the patience.

Thanks to Mary Thomas's Knitting Book, I am inspired to start knitting with fewer stitches - even 8! It is exciting to see the work grow ... isn't it wonderful?

It sounds awful to use dpns with such a few number of stitches and that's what I could stand for I also crochet. Similarly I can't start off the project with long foundation chains! That's why I stick to crocheting round or triangular things...

Well apart from the twisted float shrug I am now thinking about trying out vests and skirts with those polygons. Wish me luck!
