Like many knitters, I hate finishing. When I get to the end of the knitting, I am done with the project. Many a sweater has sat ignored for months while I work up the gumption to put myself through the emotional strain of finishing it. My Aran has been sitting patiently since July. It only needs seaming and a neck band. I hate seaming as much as I hate picking up stitches so I knew this was not going to be a fun morning.
I was right. As usual I am disgusted by my lousy seaming. I have no talent at all with a needle and yarn so I really need to stick to seamless projects from now on. I already have two sweaters being ripped apart and redone at the moment and I am betting that before it is all over, this one will make number three. Just look at those shoulder joins. Atrocious.
