I've done a lot of things in my life that I have no desire to repeat. For instance, I will never dye my hair red and get a perm at the same time again. Walking out of the salon looking like Bozo the Clown was a once in a lifetime experience for me. I feel much the same about my knitting. If I've made something that's all consuming, I'm unlikely to repeat myself. I felt this way about Clapotis, though I know a few people who've knit that pattern several times. Part of why I don't repeat myself is that there are only so many knitting hours alloted in life to a knitter. Why not try a lot of patterns instead of focusing on just one or two? Socks, washcloths, mittens and hats don't count since they don't consume a lot of my inner soul while knitting
