I have a bad habit, which I will now confess: I do not finish knitting projects.
Scarves, yes. I have finished scarves. But in my UFO (Unfinished Fiber Objects) list, I have a sweater (got too big, disgusted, quit it); a sock which I began in August - stuck on the heel - scared of messing it up - plus 4 complete kits with yarn and notions that I dare not start.
As I am a very extreme INFP, this makes sense. From a website description of INFP challenges: "INFP's are perfectionists. They may be self-critical. They feel there is never enough time to do the job right. They must recognize when to quit, and live with a less than perfect product."
Seems kind of profound, no? Could it possibly be a metaphor for other things in my life? Hmmm!
I have so many friends who produce gorgeous knitted items. Whole garments!! And you should have SEEN all the hand-knit socks with Birkenstocks and clogs at this weekend's gathering! To say nothing of sweaters...but if I could just finish the socks...it would be so great.
I tried last night, but the place where I was going to knit didn't have good light. The other place (my library chaise lounge, space designed for quiet reading and knitting) was full of blankets that Ken put there. I gave up. Self sabotage, anyone? I could have moved the blankets...
