a never ending project

work in progress

Do you ever start a project that you feel like you will never finish? That's how I feel about my current crochet project. I've been plodding away on this baby blanket since January. Why the delay? A few reasons:

  1. I don't like the yarn much. I forgot how much I dislike working with synthetic yarn.
  2. The colors didn't turn out like I had hoped (looks better in this picture than it does in real life)
  3. Tunisian crochet takes forever...
  4. I haven't had much time to sit down and work on it.

But I'm determined to finish it! Right now it's measuring about 20.5 inches by 32 inches, so I have at least 12 inches to make it square, perhaps a little more than that to use up the  yarn.

Maybe it will turn out better than I think...or maybe someone else will like it more than I do and I can give it away. Or maybe I'll just keep going because I hate quitting and want to use up all this yarn.

How do you force yourself to finish a project you've started when you don't have the ambition to keep going? Do you come back to it later? Or do you just quit the project entirely?
