Why some projects and not others?
I find myself preferentially knitting on some projects more than others. I was so excited when I started my LSU socks, now they just sit in their bag and are barely worked on. I love them and want to finish them. I somehow think it is the magic loop method. I am not a fan of contantly sliding and moving the stitches around. I love the idea and don't find it difficult to do. I recently made a pair of fingerless mitts for myself. I knit them quickly on dpn's. Is it cause I can just keep going and going around and around without re-arranging all the stitches? I am tempted to place one of my socks on dpn's and see if I get more knit quickly.
Don't even get my started on the giraffe. I know why I don't work on that one; I don't like the pattern. I find the directions hard to read and confusing. The reason I can't the toy is the finished product is sooo cute! I just hope it is worth it and I can actually give it away in the end. I am tempted to look for a new pattern, but somehow I know I won't.
Time to get knitting again.
