I do have an excuse for each and every one of these unfinished projects. Really.
First up, Sofia’s dress.
See, we cancelled their big birthday party because 1) I am a horrible mother; 2) they are 4 and 2 and won’t know the difference; 3) I’m tired; and 4) I am a horrible mother. So, I didn’t have this looming deadline to finish her dress so … I just didn’t. This dress is basically done, I just have to do the finishing, but the finishing requires some new techniques and therefore concentration and therefore more than 30 minutes of sleep a night so I just haven’t gotten around to it.
Next up … Aiman’s sweater. This is a winter sweater and its summer so there is no urgency. Plus, I just couldn’t do another row of stockinette. I COULD NOT!
Finally, I just started a blanket for my co-worker’s baby that is due in August. This is a VERY fast knit and so satisfying since you can see the cool chevron pattern emerge almost immediately. I can basically get through one color a night and there are seven colors planned so I should be able to finish this by the end of the week. I (currently) love this blanket so (maybe) I will finish it?
So there you have it. I’m a beginning knitter who can’t finish a project. There must be a name for people like us.
