I don’t think that is particularly odd. But most of my things are the last little details, Kitchener stitch the toe (which I like) or weaving in the ends. Once I put sock toes on toothpicks so I could use the needles to cast on new socks.
Here is my worst offense.
‘Finished’ 25+ years ago, I pretend it is fringe at the end of the rows.
I can not imagine how many other projects are in bags awaiting a final step. With my crochet it is so easy to finish that last stitch and move on. Often even using the item (such as my blanket).
Currently I have still more needles on order. Before they arrive I promised myself I would weave in ends and free up some needles.
Why? Not for personal satisfaction, gratification, sense of accomplishment, because I have projects itching to cast on.
What did I do? I cast on for a preemie hat because it uses slightly larger needles than the socks I make. 🙂
What are you itching to do?
