I'm so ashamed
I am so ashamed. I've been working on The Envelope Afghan since March! The pattern is so easy that it's boring the absolute he!! out of me!!!
:zzz:

*sigh*
Just thought I'd vent a bit. :? One day I'll "seal the envelope"...

Honey...u r preaching to the choir, as the saying goes!! I felt that way when I just knit the afghan for my nephew's wedding earlier this month or late last month. I break up the monotony by doing a fun project like socks in the middle of the afghan. AND...now I find out I've got another nephew getting is getting married July 30, I found out last week!! Well, his afghan will be very late!! I enjoy knitting afghans...a lot!! But, you are ever so correct, they can get B.O.R.I.N.G.
Please, don't be embarrassed....happens to all of us!! I'm embarrassed that I forgot that I had my yarn for a booga bag until somebody said something about it today or yesterday. I got the yarn right before the socks dealy and after all that began I guess I've forgotten everything. I really need to go thru my project list and update it and this time do the yarn, needles, and books and put it all on computer....but that doesn't mean that I will :D ...I am thinking about it!
OKAY, ekgheiy ...THIS IS AN ORDER (I'm positive that I am older than you, so you have to respect your elders):: Put the afghan down and knit something fun and then go back to it and your attitude will have changed!!

e, I feel your pain. I've had poncho #2 on the needles for about 5 months and I just can't bear to pick it up because it's sooooo boring. Poncho #1 was great beginner's practice...but #2 is torture....I try to keep it hidden but every so often DD sees it and asks when I'm going to finish.

Is that March of this year?? Oh, Honey, you have nothing to feel bad about! I agree with the other posters here----change direction for a time. The afghan will look much beter in a week or two.

When I saw March, I counted, hmm. . . . April, May, June, July. Let's see I've got that sweater that needs the sleeve redone sitting on my dresser since, lets see, this time last year. And the other one that needs 1 1/2 sleeves since at least March, and , and, and. . Not to mention the afghan that I abandoned for felted clogs.

I do know, though, that IT WILL ALL GET DONE! In it's own time. When I feel like it.

How long do knit at one sitting? I know it differs but the average amount of time.

Hilde, you :XX: 10 Afghans since March?

Take a break! Do something fun! Rebecca is always right

I always have to be doing more than one project at once. I must be one of those "ADD" knitters.
