You gals are all so great. I've found all 113 stitches, put in a new life line and laid it aside while I work on a no-brainer afghan pattern with yarn from my stash. Maybe I just need a break from it. There are so many things I want to try and I feel I'm getting bogged down in this simple shrug. I've yet to make anything for myself and I really want to finish it, but I have so many other projects (don't we all) in the idea stage.
Angelia, if I gave up knitting because of this, my DH might leave me considering my humungo stash waiting to be knit. .
BTW glad to hear about the Hot Damn afghan. It sounded so interesting, but I think I'll scratch that off the list. Good Luck on the baby outfit Heatherfeather!! I'd keep my fingers crossed for your success but it's hard to knit that way.
Thanks for the input ladies.
