So I’m trying to make my dad a birthday present and I’ve been working on it for like, 2 weeks already and it’s this weird poncho/shoulder warmer/hooded dickie thing and I don’t have a pattern and I don’t have the buttons I need and I’ve already had to buy more yarn for it than I thought I did and every time I fit it on him there’s something about it that needs fixing and it’s just so frustrating making something for a body that isn’t mine! *grumble* Also I want it to be done so I don’t feel guilty starting a project for myself :P But seriously. If the yarn wasn’t as soft as it is, I would have given up by now but it is lovely and soft and fluffy and my kitten always snuggles while I knit so that’s just about the only thing making this worthwhile now. Baaaaah. Humbug.
