Neverending Knitting

I haven't finished a knitting project (commissions and samples excepted) since January. The only knitting I've actually finished for myself this year has been two pair of socks. I'm serious. This was my last finished object.

I've discovered it's really hard to finish anything when all your knitting looks like this:


And this:


I'm not knitting from balls of yarn anymore, just nearly-completed projects I've decided I no longer want. The sweater? Too small, too boring. The scarf? I couldn't get the final edging on right. Maybe I'll like the new projects more.

This is why I avoid doing commissions: I love being the only boss of my knitting! It's hard when the inspiration just isn't there and there's alot of have-to things to knit.

Good for you! I don't understand the point of keeping things around if you know you are never going to wear/use them. I've been eyeing some of my less-worn knitted projects with the goal of eventually knitting them into something more useful. What's the sweater becoming?
