Project Frustration!!!!

Ok,

 I should know by now that not everything in life is fun and exciting. However, I am really hating this sweater I have been working on FOREVER!!!!!!!!!! It's for my partner, a few of you may remember me griping about it earlier,.....but I find myself knitting a few rows per evening and then putting it down....it is an irregular rib pattern...that takes a little more concentration than other projects. I know some would say i should just let it go and go on to something I enjoy....but Allan is loving the way it looks and really so am I....I just hate doing it. I have told myself I'm not starting anything else until I finish it....just for motivation. I guess I will just "two-row-a-night" it until I get there. Anyone else have this issue???? I need words of encouragment....please!

Bad week of knitting

Ive had the worst week of knitting, One I hate this yarn i bought. Carons simply soft.  It untwists and splitts easly.  I thought the red heart was bad.  I would rather go back to red heart and burn this crappy yarn.  I have six projects  going and none of them near completion.  I need to knit something up fast so i can finnish something.  The socks im working on i have been working on for a while.  im still on the leg of the first sock.  the kite string or yarn is so small and the needles so small they arnt knitting up as fast as what i was led to believe.  How could anyone get satisfaction out of socks. you could spend months on just one pair.  Sorry just needed to vent.
