Why, distractibility, of course. Falling for the lure of the quick, the small, the new.
This, of course, is the downside of the internet: access to a steady stream of new patterns, new designers, new yarns. Novelty has snatched the time that in the olden days of a few years ago I spent leafing through magazines, thinking, planning, going to the yarn store, paging through books of patterns, choosing, sitting with one, maybe two, projects, and finishing them.
Now I feel like Gargantua, stuffed to the gills with yarn, patterns, tools, books, and finished projects that, unlike this sweater, are sometimes just not all that satisfying. Time for a reboot. Or a yard sale.
As for distractibility, I am afraid that after completing the seaming of the sweater I noticed that I had sewn the sleeve to the armhole inside out and had to pull out the seams on the sleeve, part of the body, and the entire armhole and resew.
