I have a problem.
I think it’s a problem that a lot of knitters have.
I think I might hate my current project.
I loved it at first, and I’m sure one day I will love it again. But, right now- no.
I can’t talk about it in detail, or really, in anything other than the broadest, most vague terms (it’s a design I’m working on, so it’s all Top Secret, hence the very un-illuminating photos). But, let’s just say there’s a lot of stockinette.
Like a lot.
Like, I’ve been knitting plain, purple stockinette for a couple weeks now, and other than a couple Pussyhats, I haven’t been able to do anything to break up the monotony.
When I started this project, I was super jazzed- I love simple, clean designs- there’s something so elegant about simple projects. And, I know I’ll wear the heck out of this project when it’s finished.
But… oofda. It’s a lot of stockinette.
I got to do a little bit of 1×1 ribbing the other day, and I just about got up and danced a jig. I’m in a sorry state.My deadline is fast approaching, so one way or the other, I’ll finish up this project soon. And boy, am I ready.
Have you ever taken on a project that was a little too much? A little too much stockinette? A few too many cables? A bit too fiddly?
