Uggh. Is this done yet?

Guys. I feel like I have been working on this sweater for. ever. Uggh! According to Ravelry, I cast on July 22, so forever is not too much of a stretch. I’m so ready to be done. I started with the sleeves. Easy wins. Less likely to sputter out with 3 inches to go. And let’s face it: 3 inches of sleeve is a whole lot less than 3 inches of sweater.

Perry is a gorgeous pattern. I may even knit it again someday. But, guys, it is 33 inches long! That’s almost a yard! A few weeks ago I made an executive decision to shorten the thing by 2 inches. 31 inches is (in reality) not much less than 33, but somehow it seems more manageable. I am right now on inch 17. The waist decreases are finished, and I’m just about to start the waist increases. The idea of increasing makes me want to sob a little.

I’m dreaming of starting new things. Small things. Lacey things. In fingering weight yarn. Or maybe Aran. I’m also easily distracted by coasters and dressing gowns.

Help! How’s a knitter to finish when she has (almost) lost the will to knit!?!

  1. I feel your pain. I’ve been knitting a stocking forever and I just can’t get to the end. What I’ve found has helped me is designating specific time for knitting it and allowing myself to work on something else, something different at other times.
