I have my first child sweater ready to finish - just one part of a seam, then buttons and I'll be done.
It took me forever to get to picking up the stitches for the collar. I was so afraid of messing it up after I spent so long making each piece! I'm still not happy with it 100%, but I'm kind of a super-perfectionist, which doesn't really work well in knitting, does it?
So now I'm up to the part in the IK tilted duster where I have to pick up nearly 200 stitches for the "skirt." And I'm kind of afraid to do it! It's gorgeous yarn and I just don't want to screw up what I've already done.
Is that totally stupid? Does anyone else feel this way, especially new knitters?
