Skully.
Okay.... I'm still knitting the FRONT of Skully and it's been a month! Gaaaahhh. I can't seem to just sit down and knit this because it's SO boring to knit. Somebody help me out here. Encourage me! I really do want to make this sweater.

Also... I think it would help if someone else were knitting this. Anyone else want to join in and show me their progress?

The other problem I'm having is that I'm using that soft worsted weight yarn instead of wool (MUCH cheaper). I just upped the size 2 sizes. It's going to be big, but I don't know how warm. I live in Florida so it's not like it'll be a problem. So yeah... it's just BORING to knit. I was thinking of adding something, but it's a little too late.

I'm SO close to finishing the front now. I'm on the shoulders. 1 inch to go and I started knitting my hat project instead. DOH! WHY can't I just finish this??? :crying:

Now you know why we all have several things on the needles. Boring is boring. Rent a movie or two, make yourself sit and knit on it. When it gets to be too, too, much, set it aside and do something else. When you're ready, you'll pick it up again.

*sigh* Well okay then. I just wish I were more patient, but I do believe I'll get the little sucker done.

I know what you mean about boring projects. I have a hooded scarf on the needles from 2 years ago. What is the Skully sweater?

It's from Stitch N' Bitch: A Knitter's Handbook. It's a sweater pattern and it's soooo cute. It's a good beginner's sweater for straight needles. I just LOVE the book too. It has some AWSOME patterns, ecspecially for us younger crowd.

kome,
That little thingy you are holding in your photo looks just like what I did the at my first class so I could learn the knit stitch. It is the exact color too.
I think it is great that you found someone to do the sweater along with you. That sounds like such fun.
I've got that book and just started reading it not long ago and am enjoying it.
Have a nice night,
Susie

I enjoy reading, quilting (started 10/11/2003), bread baking, purse making, making fabric bowls. I use to macramé and decorate cakes.
I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/
