The Saga Continues

I mean the sock. It just feels like a never ending saga. I don’t have a good reason why it isn’t done. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m kind of sick of knitting it.

Do you ever get that way about your projects? At this point I think knitting anything else would be exciting.

  1. Scarves. Scarves almost always make me want to cry in boredom, especially the one on myneedles now — it’s pure stockinette after the beaded edge. It’s also never-ending! Bored or not, your sock looks awesome!

  2. First, loving the sock, it looks so delicate and pretty. I have had exactly the same experience with the socks I have just finished. They took so long considering they are plain vanilla, I knitted one using new techniques, never knitted its pair so I decided to go back to my tried and tested recipe in the mistaken idea I could knock out a pair in the few days leading up to Christmas and wear them on Christmas Day. Missed that deadline, but surely I could finish before New Year. Nope! Finally made myself finish them on New Year’s Day. I don’t have any idea why they were so tortuous or why I made the number of mistakes I did with knitting them. Honestly, the number of times I dropped stitches – I never drop stitches!

    Oh my, yes! Like stitchedroots, I really don’t like knitting scarves, especially the ones you knit short rows back and forth. I do better with the sideway knitted ones. And I sometimes get bored with socks.

    When that happens, I do not let myself cast on anything bright and shiny until I finish. That prize motivates me.

    That’s a good looking sock!

    If I am bored by a project I tend to stop knitting it, and then I rip it out. So I’m no help.

  5. That looks like something I’d work on while waiting at the doctor’s or dentist’s for my husband.

    It is a beautiful sock. But yes, I get sick of a project and then make the mistake of putting it down and turning to something else. I found three such projects this past week as Yarn Rascal and I went through the WIP bins. Sigh. I’d now like to finish them but don’t know what I did with the instructions nor where I put the rest of the yarns for the projects.

  7. Is it fingering weight? I always find those projects drag on but are really satisfying when finished lol cast on another project that is quick to break up the monotony!

  8. I feel like I get that way about every project. Socks are always worth it in the end, but they get so boring before they are done.

    Maybe it’s the color, so soft and subtle it’s putting you to sleep. Maybe a brighter yarn would keep your attention. Just remember how cozy they will be with a toe on them. Not as warm as is!

  10. Your sock is looking great, but yes – I definitely have been where you are at! It isn’t really even anything to do with the project. It’s just the time it takes for whatever reason 🙂 Hang in there! It will be finished soon, and then you will have some great socks at the end of it!

    I think I get that way about every project. It’s usually just before I turn the corner to being close to done.
