Test Knitting

For a few years I’ve been doing test knits for designers.  I’ve done over 30 test knits and usually enjoy them.

In July I accepted a test knit that I wasn’t going to be paid for.  It was a travelling cable toe up sock.  There were quite a few testers and I had until the end of July to complete it.  I’ve struggled with directions as they are very complex and I’ve not been enjoying it.  I put it down and explained to the designer that I was struggling, but would complete it as soon as I could.  

I still haven’t finished it and am contemplating ripping it out and giving up.  I just can’t do it.  I feel a total failure as this is the first time I’ve not been able to complete a pattern.  

What would you do?  Would you grit your teeth and try to carry on, or would you rip it out and forget all about it?
