The Stocking is Done.


Yay! It's done. Now I have to make another stocking for C#1, and then hats for everyone. What I would really like to know is how C#1 managed to lose every hat last year? Except for the one he will no longer wear, of course. D always loses hats, so I'm really thinking about what kind of hat I'll make him, nothing too fancy that's for sure.

Sure.

You had to ask, didn't you? No. I have NOT forgotten about, nor have I finished, the mohair sweater.

Well, I guess Aunt G. will be in town on the 15th of October, so that's my new deadline for the mohair thing. Can you tell I have no more enthusiasm or energy for this sweater?

I don't know. Knitting someone a sweater is a big deal. Especially when it's a big person, well, no she's not that big, I mean she is an adult. So you know, it would be nice if someone acknowledged all your hard work in making every single ****ing stitch and cable in a handknit sweater...

Sigh.

Sadly, I am sure you know what I mean.

Well, there really isn't much more left to knit. If I dedicate a day to it I should be able to finish. I need to get it done and out of my house. If it stays any longer it'll just gather more hard feelings.

I'll try to take photos of the stocking tomorrow...

my sympathies are with you. I have a top which I've been trying to muster the enthusiasm to finish for months. Luckily its only for me so no-one gonna get disappointed. IT is definately the LAST garment I will ever make though! Good luck.

I know how you feel. I've been trying to finish a top for months but just have no enthusiasm for it at all. It is definately the LAST garment I EVER make! Good luck.

I'm very proud of you for sticking with it when most of us would have "lost" the darn thing.

Knitting a sweater for someone is a big deal, and it hurts when that is not acknowledged. {{{J}}}
