"Teen-age" Projects

I don't know if anyone else out there experiences this, but I have a project on-going (and yes, it's the super-secret project) that has turned into a teenager.  I don't like it any more. It's surly and it's not cooperating with me at all.  When I work on it I'm having to WORK on it and getting a significant workout in the process.  While I'm not upset about the exercise, I would like this to be easier.  I want to love this project and be happy with it and have it bring me great joy just like I know it'll bring great joy to those who receive it when it's finished.

But, for now, it's a teenager and I'd rather kick it out of my house than keep it around.

And once I am finished with this project (hopefully by this weekend) I'm going to have a graduation ceremony and then drop it in the PO to send to the person who I'm in cahoots with.  I have absolute confidence that she will turn in this surly teenager into a lovely full-grown project who will be a joy to be around.

Until then, I'll deal with its bad attitude and hopefully finish raising it so I can be rid of it for a while!

Today's picture is NOT of the secret project, but is instead of the purple sock (which I've had to put aside for another secret project.  It dawned on me this weekend that the quilt bee is really only 3 months away and this other project which has been neglected because of the teenager simply isn't going to finish itself).  I've started working on the leg and gussett and just love how the cable looks.  Click on the pciture for a close-up look.
