Loose Ends...

Does anyone remember the sweater I was working on a couple of months ago? I kind of stalled out on it before I started on the second sleeve. I knit the front and back (and attached one of the shoulder seams), and the first sleeve, but for some reason I just lost interest.

Here's the pretty (very warm) little pile---

Here's my unfinished sleeve---
I cast on for the second sleeve yesterday, and I'm a little over a third of the way through. Here are all three of my finished pieces.

I thought I'd share a . I'm hoping to have the sleeve finished by tomorrow or the next day at most.

I don't like stalling on projects. I'd much rather finish them in a timely manner. Which leaves one question ----

What do you do to avoid stalling out on a project? Do you do things in any particular order to avoid this?

I love the colour and I love your STR too, they have come out beautifully.

I'm finding the UFO Resurrection a godsend for finishing stuff. It's inspiring to finish up one UFO a month, but not too overwhelming.

I agree, it's hard to get going again when you stall. Good for you for picking up the sweater - keep on going.

I try to keep working on stuff even when I'm not feeling it... hard though. Sometimes I bribe myself with new yarn or fiber, or make a "rule" that I can't start anything new until the stalled project is finished (Year before last I spent 3 months NOT knitting a pair of socks that way - finally got them done though...)
The sweater looks great - you'll be done in no time flat!

Sorry - no helpful comments here because I stall regularly. Your sweater is looking great!

Bull dog tenacity or sheer force of will. It's the Navy in me. Don't quit even when you are running on fumes! See it through to the end.
Besides I want to wear the item I'm knitting. That motivates me.

I'm glad you're working on that again, it's going to be beautiful. Speaking of stalling... I'm still stuck in the middle of a blanket, I'm starting to think it'll never get done. Maybe I need to spend more time with my knitting buddy for inspiration ;)
