I wonder how many more times I'll ignore that instruction as I move from ribbing to body in my sweater making career. I feel like that robin that used to bonk into my window every day at sunset. Tonight I'll frog 30 rows of the Lfront CPH and Change to Larger Needles.
So I was thinking about finishing and seaming. And I wonder. My aversion to it came as a result at being completely surprised by the fact that it took more than 20 seconds and that I was not going to be wearing that first sweater as soon as I knit the last stitch. I'm thinking maybe I won't hate it so much now that I know it's coming and that it takes longer than 20 seconds and possibly longer even than 20 minutes. If I plan for 20 hours, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.
I'm going to call that a knitting delusion- the 20 second finishing- due to inexperience. Want to make me feel better as I face my stupidity and lack of atttention span this evening? Share your worst knitting delusion. It's o.k. you can sign in as anonymous if you feel you need to.
except if there's a post about finishing Icarus, I'll know who you are.
