of any problem is to acknowledge the problem. For the first time ever, I admitted it out loud, to someone who occasionally knits (now there's something I don't understand):
I HAVE SWEATER-FINISHING ISSUES.
The lie has gone on long enough. I am coming out. I do not like to finish sweaters. I haven't completed one yet in two years. I have a sweater for Callista that has minimal finishing left on it and yet, I have not finished it, and if I don't finish it soon, it won't fit Sabrina either.
Then there is the aforementioned Allen (husband) sweater. The back is almost done . . .
This has nothing to do with completion. I complete projects all the time. I mean, I pushed my way through that damn yoga bag didn't I? Scarves, flip-flops, ponchos, socks, booties, blankets. I've finished all of them, gifted many of them. But sweaters, ah, there's the rub.
What's the big deal? It's just a sweater. But, clearly, if I can't finish a kid's sweater, it's not looking good for the husband.
So, I turn to you, the knitting public for help. What's a girl to do?
