Thank you for your confession.  I have been working, pretty steadily, on Noro Knits Hudson and the sleeves are endless!!!  I am so tired of them that I have begun avoiding my living room because I know they are in there!  It's only been a few weeks but it feels like unrewarding knitting quicksand!  Hang in there!

Mine isn't a knitting project, but the crocheted cathedral window afghan has been dragging for a year of two.  I've recently sat down to finish at least to a presentable level.

Though there is that knit blanket that's been sleeping for just as long...

I find that, in this respect, not having a super-fast computer helps.  I just pick up the project and do a few rows while the damn thing is loading  Grin

I had a project take 3 years once...I'd say six months is doing well!

I just finished the back to school vest from fitted knits, and with a huge amount of ribbing, it was taking forever. So i put a saefty pin in a stitch one morning, so I could see how much I did in my lunch break and after work knitting.  It amazed me to see how much had actually gotten done, and it helped to keep me motivated, in that i got into a mindset of 'oh but I've done a fair bit, it cant take much longer now' and helped me to keep knitting.  Other than that, I really agree with the others that said to set little goals and work at that!
