As you know I have been trying to finish the Moth Wing Shrug for quite a while, as I mentioned in my first day of vacation post. I thought I would finish Wednesday, didn't so I then thought that Thursday would be it. It wasn't. I had it completed but didn't like how the sleeve edging fitted my arms so I redid it. I finished most of it in the short time I had on Friday to work on it, finished the last round of actual crocheting yesterday, and wove in the ends this morning. Now all I need to do is block it and trim the loose ends off.
Next up is another top, the Luna Sweater, that I have had almost completed for a long time now too. I first started it in the winter of 2009 or early 2010. I just have one side seam, one sleeve to attach, and the neck edging to complete and I will be finished. This one has me concerned about the size of the fit. It looks SMALL! I made the small, which was to my measurements. However, this thing better block out a few good inches in length and width otherwise there is no way this thing will fit an adult.
With both of these projects being the only ones I have ever made to take so long for me to finish has me wondering why these. What makes a project be set aside for a long period of time before you pick them up again and actually complete them? Why have I on these projects and not others? I wonder if when choosing another project I should think if I will truly finish it in a relatively short time, and if I don't will I be ok with possibly not finishing it. Of course, then where would be the fun of trying something new!
