used to be much harder

Recently, the project that has been the most compelling is also the project that has been the most frustrating. I'm designing the pattern and it's still in the swatching stage. Unfortunately, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to translate what's in my mind into yarn. Below, you can see the backside of one of many attempts to do so.
I didn't want to recreate the wheel, so I've trolled Ravelry and scoured pattern books to find a stitch that works, but no luck yet. I took a break from being absurdly frustrated to work on an absurdly simple one.
Suddenly, I have a new most compelling knit.

Yeah, designing shit is hard.

True that.

No joke, that's why I leave my design ideas in my dreams.

this is very pretty yarn (on both counts).

as for the designing, I cannot follow instructions much less make up my own, which is why i still make tubes and squares.
