Make me finish this. LOL I am not used to knitting with such little needles and yarn (sz 2) so this project is frustrating me already. I knit 1hr Tues night and every spare moment yesterday and my wrists are feeling it today. I only got barely 6 cm done. This will take forever. The good news is it is a baby jacket so the back which is what I've started with is supposed to be 26cm before the neck shaping. I'm just not sure I can keep up with it knowing it will take so long and yet still just b ethis tiny thing and I hate to say it but I doubt anyone will really get how long it took ywkim?
I feel your pain! I get very frustrated knitting with small needles - feel like I am never going to finish (sometimes feel this way with LARGER needles, lol) But know that we are here, cheering you on!

I'm knitting with #2US dpn for a sock. I know what you mean about it being slow. I do a little and I don't expect it to go fast. Be sure to take pictures after you finish, because you know how long it took and you can always look back on it, with fond memories, I hope.

I completely understand what you are saying about hard work on a baby knitting project. The first baby blanket that I knit I made it in individual squares and put them together in rows and columns and added a crocheted border. That took about a year to make and it ended up being so big that it will probably be given to me by my mother when I have kids (which is at least 5 or 6 years down the line). It is very beautiful and the hard work paid of. It is made from Caron Simply Soft Baby Brights.

FO- a few hats in the round(just taught myself to join without twisting)

something else fun- making a blanket in the round

It's 100 degrees here and I'm making a baby surprise sweater for a preggo friend. It used small needles too. Just do a little at a time. You'll get there. I'm right there with you
