Comments: Fear of Finishing

I'm glad i'm not the only one!!! I have all the sweater pieces. DONE. but blocking scares the heck outta me. I've never done it before, you know. And all I have to do is use the iron to steam it after I do the shoulders & then after I do the side seams/sleeves. I can do that. . . I think.

Kat! Bring your pieces to the spinning meeting and I will bring my blocking paraphernalia and we will get you over your fear! It's all in having the right tools and knowledge. You'll see!

I'm a horrible finisher too. It's not fear, I think it's because I don't have the patience for it. I have the patience for knitting, but to pin something out, block it, seam it and be particular and exacting about it? Not my thing. I want instant gratification. Anyone have a magic wand (or knitting needle) that I can wave over the pieces of a project to make them finish themselves? I haven't even woven in the two ends from a pair of socks I made. Pathetic.
