I am in desperate need of getting this project done and I so don't want to knit it anymore.
I have been consistently knitting on this lace stole for my sister-in-law's wedding for months now and I have lost all interest. It is a monotonous repetition of 12 rows. I don't even look at the pattern any more, I have it all memorized. This should make it go faster, right? Wrong. It has two rows of these bobble like bumps the pattern calls "Nupps" that require me to use a crochet hook to pull a stitch through 7 other stitches. It is the only way I have figured out to do it and it takes me forever.
Now don't get me wrong, I know this will be beautiful when it is all done, but right now I really hate this stole, and it is only half way through. I only have a couple more months to get it done!
So what do I do?
Do I trudge on and keep knitting? There is a very important deadline, after all.
I find other projects to start. I type up snarky posts about the darn thing. I teach myself to crochet and start an afghan of granny squares.
I seriously have a problem. This would so become a UFO if it wasn't for the fact that my sister-in-law will be expecting it on her arms on that special day in August.
Alright, time to put down the computer, put away the afghan and get knitting on this thing.
Well, maybe after I make the little girl a knitted cat out of the yarn she picked out the other day. :)
