Making Up is Hard to Do

Why is it that finishing my knitted pieces becomes an overwhelming challenge sometimes?  I knit along, incredibly eager to see the finished project, but, after all of the pieces are knit, I seem to find excuses to avoid doing the finishing work.  Making up is hard to do.

I'm not sure if it's sewing anxiety or some other form of generalized laziness.  But, right now, I've got a Baby Bolero and my Debbie Bliss Manos Silk Shrug both in unfinished pieces.  I'm knitting the last piece of Ellie's Miho Shrug, done in the same yarn as my own Shrug, and I've decided this is it.  When I'm finished, I'm going to have to devote an entire weekend to getting some finishing skills.

Here are the pieces of Ellie's Miho Shrug.


The yarn is Manos's silk/merino blend and the colors are fabulous.


I like the colorway so much that I decided we had to have coordinating Shrugs, and there is no doubt that this is the kind of colorway that goes with just about everything.

There are about 4" left to finish that last piece of Ellie's Shrug.  Will finishing anxiety overtake me again?  I hope not.  I'm determined to conquer it and finish these pieces this month.
