Road Block

After moving along so nicely on my Amused sweater, I have officially hit a road block. I hit the road block about a week ago. Yep, it was definitely a week ago. The body is finished, the sleeves are finished, and now it's time for the collar. I have to pick up (and remove from the crochet cast-on...maybe there is an easy way to do this, but I don't know it!) a hundred and something stitches around the collar. I did maybe half of them last Saturday (and I did about a quarter of them twice, because I decided I was doing it wrong the first time), put it down because I just couldn't take it anymore and I needed a break. I've picked it up twice since then...and moved it to a different part of the living room. Maybe today I can make myself finish! Finish picking up the stitches, that is... not finish the collar! I bought the yarn for this sweater almost a year ago! I am determined to finish. I am determined to finish. I am determined to finish.

I even washed a whole bunch of dishes this morning rather than knit. That's how intimidated I am by this project right now!!

You can do it! You can do it! Pointing out that you did the dishes instead made me clearly understand your anxiety.

I can relate in that I'm trying to finish writing a book...and it seems like I've found every reason to procrastinate now that I'm 10 pages from the end!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest.

Me too - I can totally relate. I'm trying to "stare down" the blogoshpere and hope it blinks first! I do find this intimidating also and think I will start some laundry to get past it. LOL

I admire what you've done so far. I never learned how to knit!
