For the last 3 weeks I can not seem to finish any of my wip item. I currently have a sock, bib, cowl, lap afghan, afghan all on knitting needles and I have on crochet hooks a blanket and a preemie hat which have been on the hooks for months. And I can't seem to get myself to finish the items. I will pick up something new to start on. Has this happen to anyone else? I ordered yarn from Ice yarns and received the package on Wednesday and will not let myself open the package since I know I will start another item to use with some of that yarn.
The sock started it all. I am doing my Favorite Vanilla socks by Meaghan Schmaltz on 9in circulars and I hated doing the heel flap and turn. I am on the instep and can't seem to finish it. With the bib I only have the last shoulder to do, but I am not happy with the way it turned out, the cowl is what I am currently working on. The afghan I only have 3 rows done and put that down to work on weekends when I do not get interrupted by friends calling. I can not seem to pick that up and start on it. Which I really need to since I was planning on giving that as a wedding gift in Oct. I was hoping to make some hats and scarves as Christmas gifts for my family and friends but I feel I should finish what I started before I start on that.
Any advice on getting me to finish the items I have started or should I just start working on other stuff? Since I got stung by a black wasp on my ankle yesterday and it still is a little swollen and sore it is a good day for me to just sit and knit as much as I can.
These have kept me busy in between looking after hubby and grandson.
Apart from the bride and groom (Jean Greenhowe) the others are all my own designs.
Can anyone help me identify this item?
Baby (girl) shower gifts
My nephew and his wife are expecting their first baby in early October. My gift to them included bibs, burp cloths, a taggie blanket and a stuffed fox. What would I do without Pinterest? They seemed to really appreciate the handmade gifts.
Cast on stitches
My knitting cast on stitches are always messy, any suggestions on how to make them neater?

Looking for standard sizing
A while back I purchased luxury cashmere silk merino yarn intended for someone’s baby. They had a difficult time staying pregnant and finally three years later are past the stage of worry.
I want to design a long sleeve and long pants onesie or sweater set for a newborn or 0-3 months, since I haven’t found anything online I love. I have designed hats and mittens and changed existing patterns to what I needed but never something so complicated from scratch.
I’m just not sure what size newborn or 0-3 babies are. Is there a resource that tells me how big a chest is, how long sleeves should be etc?
Thank you all for your help
Not sure how to tackle / knit this - please help
Hallo Everyone , I have a project in/on my mind which would involve to knit a rounded longer than front "shirt style back" .
My Question : Is it possible to cast on all the required stitches in rib and then do partial knitting ? OR ... do I start with partial knitting and increase till I have all the stitches on the machine - knit the rest of the back and after completion pick up stitches to do the rib ...OR - knit a separate piece and attach it later ? What is the best way to go about this ?
From my experience with all you so talented KP friends there must be help coming my way - Thanks 🙏 all ready in advance ,Ose
