I Quit!

I started this sweater ...


... and I quit! After two inches of the back. It was stocking stitch in 4 ply yarn, and was going to take. For. Ever. And it was very, very boring to knit. I just don't like the sweater enough to have any hope of finishing it.

So what to do instead? I think probably either this cardigan (I doubt I have enough yarn to do the top as well) ...
... or one of these sweaters.


I'm leaning towards a short sleeved sweater as being less of a marathon with the fine yarn.

Bummer, and I do know what you mean about knitting something that is boring, I just can't do it :) I really like the beige-ish one with the belt (although I probably wouldn't wear it with a belt) it has some cool detail on the side!! Good luck!

Kathryn,

Have you tried knitting in the round -- gets rid of seams and the boring plain knit back part ...

Using circs just CO for both back and front and have it up until the underarms ... than split for front and back and do as the directions tell you from there ...

Hope that helps ... email or e-holler or whatever if you have any questions ....
