The Opposite of "Startitis"

The opposite of Startitis must clearly be "Finishitis" - and I have a very serious case of it. I grabbed all my unfinished work for the "Weekend WIP Wipeout" in my Ravelry group, and this is all the stuff that requires no additional knitting. No binding off, not another single stitch needed. 3 cowls need buttons sewn on (to become a "pidge"), 3 items need fringe. The rest is all just ends needing sewn in. And some of them have been in that "finishing" basket for years. Anyone else have this problem?

When I set out to make something I'm always in a hurry to see it
completed. I never used to have any WIP...until lately. The reason
is always the same. As my project is coming along I realize it's not
looking the way I had envisioned. Then starts my quest to alter the
pattern to make it what I had in mind. When that fails, I lose all
interest in completing it, knowing I won't be happy with the results. I have a few projects that are patiently waiting for me to
frog them, so the yarn can used for a more satisfying project. I
also never really had much of a stash, you can well imagine how
this has helped rectify that!o_O:ROFLMAO:
