Or maybe it’s the other way around? It’s been so long since I’ve said those words that I can’t remember.
I’m starting to feel this way about the sweater that I’ve been working on. Glee is a super cute pattern, but for some reason, the Sweater Goddess has looked down at me and said, “NONE FOR YOU!” I haven’t worked on it in a few weeks, and every time I look at it, I feel nothing but defeat and disgust.
I hate giving up on something. I don’t like to be the type of person not to follow things through, especially with a large project such as a sweater. I also know my track record when it comes to knitting sweaters …. 1 for 4 I think it is??? Anyway, I feel upset (I really don’t want to frog it AGAIN!), embarrassed (Wow … she can’t even finish a sweater!), and defeated. I’m just not sure what to do about it. And the worst part is I WANT to make myself a sweater SOOOOO badly!!! I take a look at the FOs of my friends and say to myself, I should be able to do that, shouldn’t I? Arg …. I just feel defeated.
Wow … and yes I know … my posts have been rather ‘half empty’ lately. I just get so angry when I can’t finish a knitting project, because I feel like I should be able to do anything! I can knit socks, lace shawls …. why can’t I finish one lousy sweater?
In other knitting news … Sock #1 for Tina’s test knitting pattern is finished!!!! Kitchnered it on the couch last night while watching Old School with John. I need to remember to take progress photos as I knit the second one. This project, while not sized for my tiny feet, is turning out fantastic!!!! I’m hoping to get photos up this weekend.
