I think I am a pretty good knitter until someone asks me to make them something specific and I just can't pull it off. Daughter fell in love with the Fishgyle sock pattern from Knit Picks. I waited 3 months to start them because the argyle criss-cross color was out of stock. The green finally arrived so I sat down and gave them my best shot this week, but managing all those separate strands was too much. I spent more time untangling than knitting. I tried every trick I could borrow off the internet with no luck.
I should have taken everyone's advice over on Ravelry and just knit the damn fish without the argyle part in the first place.
