View Full Version : Socks & Sweaters - MAKE me finish them!!

11-12-2006, 12:30 AM


I totally messed up this sock once i got past the short row heel so now I have a friend who is going to try and fix it. The pattern is all off. But it sure looked good up until the heel! it's my own pattern.

This is a "Knitting Pure and Simple - Split Neck T" pattern.


I need someone to kick my butt and make me finish my knits!

:poke: (i coulda sworn we had those smileys that show one smiley whipping another; pretend you see that here). Finish those items! That top is looking great and fitting you *perfectly*. You'd better finish it. Don't make me come over there. Are you doing any knitting today? If you are, you are knitting that other sleeve. No back talk, missy. I will ask for a picture of your progress tomorrow. (whipping smiley)

I get frustrated about projects too and end up letting them sit around - but you've come so far already - you have to finish them! They are going to be beautiful when you are done. You'll be so proud of yourself! YOU CAN DO IT!!!

By the way - I LOVE our avatar - your fairy with the knitting needles is just adorable! :heart:

Thanks Bec, I had an artist create her for me :)

Okay well I figured out why I hate working on that sweater, cause i am doing magic loop for the sleeve so today I ordered a smaller circular needle so I can just work in the round all simple and not be irritate, and the sock well they had a disaster but I did turn the heel and now all is well again after a friend had a look at them this weekend so now I need to get back to it. ARGH! lol SAD isn't it, but I am working on the sleeves to another FO so there is that.... BAD PIXIE!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING???? Get back to knitting? You think because you ordered needles that you get to stop? Do you think I come to this forum for my HEALTH? NO! I come here to see finished objects!!!!

:hug: Now I feel guilty for yelling at you!

hehe :D

:shrug: If you're having a hard time getting into these projects, why not take a break and do something else for a while? I took a long vacation from a sweater, and I'm just starting to feel excited about tackling it again. Unless you have a deadline, why force yourself? Knitting is supposed to be enjoyable!

Pixie, your projects are gorgeous so far, you MUST finish them.
