Why Can't I Finish?!?!

Why is it when I get 80% of my project done I can't push past that last 20%? Every single time I get a project just about done I start another one. I figure its due to my being bored but still. Currently I have three projects I'm *just* about finished with but for some craaazy reason I just can't get into them...I have to be in the mood. I hate hate hate doing things, especially hobbies, when I'm not enjoying them. I suppose everyone has those moments but it's like I have FO A.D.D. Then to make matters worse I start other projects.

The first of one of those such projects was actually a test knit for Carol Sunday called Adam's Rib Hoodie...it was a complicated knit but I enjoyed the complexity of it and the challenge. But there it sits, languishing in its designated knitting bag beside my bed begging to be finished!

I think part of the problem is that I feel its too big for me. I'm actually debating on whether I should frog it and make another one..one with long sleeves..but I honestly hate to do this because it took me many many months to actually get it to this point.

The second such project Cloud Chaser..all that needs to be done with it is the collar..that's it!!! I was actually supposed to have this done prior to going to vacation at the beginning of this month..:/

The last but certainly not least is my daughter's socks. I have one fully finished and the other 1/3 of the way done..

To make my life more complicated I decided I would start two other projects, the Little Red Riding Hoodie and a self written pattern based loosely on another pattern I kinda liked..Hopefully I can get that one posted and even put on Ravelry :)..I suppose I like feeling as if I have plenty to do..and as long as its not stressing me out its fine..right?!?!


Knit and be Happy, Kim

I feel the exact same way sometimes! I joined a group on rav over the summer SOFO, and I finished up 9!! of my WIPs! I was pretty stoked about that. And most of them were kinda sorta close to being done...I just got bored and kept casting on newer, more exciting projects! Since then I'm trying to turn my WIPs into FOs, and only casting a new item on once I've decreased the WIPs by 5. I'm doing ok so far...but there a sooo many things I really really want to cast on! :) right now right now! :)

your work is lovely and listen - I also signed up with Carole to test knit Adams Rib and I had to beg off which was awful! Too many other things happening with senior parents, etc. So - you are my hero! Carry on!
