My latest knitting project

I've been working on a knitted top (pictured) that I will (hopefully) wear over items much like a short sleeved sweater. Just like any other pattern I have found my issues and problems with the way the it was written. Its understandable that writing patterns can be very difficult but sometimes I think some companies really just don't put forth the effort to edit their patterns. Whenever I get theses nightmare patterns I start questioning my own abilities as a knitter. There was a certain book that I felt was slapped together so poorly that I went to the extra effort to point out that people will be frustrated and put off by their writing style. Oh well... just be aware that knitting is, in a lot of ways frustrating and that most of the time is isn't you.
If your interested this wonderful pattern is a Plymouth yarn pattern # s301
