Ease Progress! And some normal sweater doubts.

So, almost always when I’m knitting something, I’ll have at least one period of doubt about the project.

If it’s a garment, I’ll eventually worry that it won’t fit the way I way hoping it would. Sometimes I second guess a colour choice I’ve made, or a modification I chose. Often my worries are totally irrational, and rationally, I know that the project will very likely end up being great in the end.

Sometimes blocking will make all the difference, sometimes I’ll remember that garments will look better on my body when I’m wearing regular clothes (instead of “hanging out at home clothes”… I hope I’m not the only person who has those).

Anyway, despite making good progress on my Ease sweater (and therefore making NO progress on the work I’m actually supposed to be doing), I’m feeling a bit worried about it. Irrationally so, of course :)

Do you ever have mid-project doubts?

  1. I think that’s totally a normal part of knitting, the doubts about a project at some point. If it’s really bugging me, I take the stitches off the needle, put them on some waste yarn, and try it on. that usually fixes my doubts !

    • You’re so right Julie! I’m kind of to the point where I can recognize that I’m doubtful but also ignore it, because the finished piece is always used and loved anyway :) I definitely try on in-progress projects a TON too! (PS. I love your blog, longtime reader!)
