Dilemna


So I have one nearly finished sweater-just two short ribbed sleeves to go. This could be a 1 hour jobbie and then voila...FO. Just one problem-I'm procrastinating. Not sure why. It could be due to the shortage of yarn. I am down to 2/3rds of a skein, and no scale handy to ensure I have allowed enough for both sleeves. But that could be fixed easily with one trip to the store and a quick purchase of a kitchen scale. Nope. It could be easy-in fact I could have finished tuesday. Instead I am more comfortable staring at the sweater on my coffeetable for a few days, savoring the chance to watch Project Runway (Alison's gone? Nooo!!) with my hands free.

Is it self-doubt? After all, the majority of sewing projects I have completed have resulted in nothing better than a few tank tops and dresses that would suit me better as nightgowns. Will my knitting be the same? Will I be forced to find a creative use for knitting as I find myself afraid to wear my FO's in public? Am I afraid that after all this work this lovely sweater may be relegated to the bottom of my sweater pile?



Behold bunnies: just to cheer you up. It works for me.

Those bunnies are so sweet. I say finish it too -- it will be lovely. And you know what, store bought stuff is not "perfect."
