The subject line is the description of my knitting output this year. I only realized it when I went to my pictures folder of "Completed" projects for 2013. This has been the year of the unfinished and/or frogged project, along with a few bouts of being really sick and also including some plain un-inspiration.
Such is life. I am disappointed, but will live. Hopefully I'll be more productive from this point, since I've got lots of things I'm ready to knit in my brain, and God knows, the yarn to knit things!
Remember this post? Well, the thing I was so close to finishing was my Narragansett sweater. I was pretty excited. I managed to get the body knit, and decided to try it all on before starting the sleeves, to be sure that I got the underarm area right. Well, I put it on, and could have easily fit five of my closest friends in it with me - it was HUGE! It looked "normal" all the time I was knitting it, so I didn't suspect that it was going to be a problem. Sigh. I then decided the following: 1) it was gonna get frogged, 2) the yarn would be put away, and [at least in theory] I would try again next spring,* and, 3) I really did need to finish reading and absorbing the info in Knit to Flatter before I tried another sweater!
Another disappointment, but surprisingly, I wasn't as upset as I would have expected, thinking back on it. Who knows. It's in the past now, and in knitting as well as in life, I'm trying to keep moving forward, you know?
Because it's pitiful to be so pitiful.
*Maybe not the same pattern, but I love the color of the yarn, so it needs to be something ...
