In praise of finished projects!

I know that I agonize over all the projects I have started and then sadly neglected. However, I do manage to finish a good many as well!

Check this out. It is my first ever knitted sweater made out of Lopi wool. I will confess that I worked for hours and hours and hours on it, got it done from the waistline all the way up to the shoulders and then proceeded to "frog" it and start all over again!

For those of you not in knitting/crocheting circles, "frogging" is what you do when you are not happy with how something it working out. It means to take hold of the yarn and unravel the work you have done. In other words, you rip it, rip it, rip it.

Wow, that's great. Is that a recent project? I can't imagine having the ... foresight? ... to work on a sweater in the summer. I would NOT be able to frog something I'd put so much effort into! LOL!

Oh, I never answered your questions! Sorry! Nope, I made it a few winters ago. In summer, I do not work much with wool, but I can handle using lighter fibers.
