GRR I just realized how much I hate casting on. It sucks so much. Makes me realize how not close to the end I am. I guess it's fun to start new project but when I'm just starting I feel so crappy... Right now I'm casting on 38 to start this: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50368.html Unfortunately I was planning on doing a few of them and stitching them together so this is going to take a while!!! Ohhh aggravation.

It's the finishing I hate.
I did a striped fidget about a week ago, and the only thing I have left to do is weave in the ends.
It's sitting on my dresser.  Ends hanging out.

You're both right.
The only cast-on I (bother to) know is single cast-on, because that is the favorite cast-on of the person who taught me, so no pretty cast-on edges for me...*tear*
And by the time you're finished with something, you're pretty much fed up with it and don't want to fiddle with the stupid thing any more. I DETEST with a passion tucking in ends, like when switching colors.

Actually, its knitting. It's boring. I just made a Transformers toque and the fiddly intarsia and decreases drove me insane but inspired me at the same time. The 45 rows of straight knitting - not so much. I made a dolls dress and it was great. Almost all the fun parts. I am re-thinking the sweater I was going to start.

I hate sewing the pieces together.  I suck at it!

It's joining and weaving in the ends for me.  I literally have a box of about 6 pair of socks sitting for about 2 years because all that's left is to weave the ends in.  Once in a while I'll take out a pair and finish them, but they get replaced by others.  I call it my  box of shame.

I only hate casting on if it's a lot of stitches, or if I have to redo it a couple of times.

When casting on and when you find out after spending about a few weeks that you made it too big and had to frog it... T.T

I can't stand seaming!  Or any kind of finishing!  I'd have a  great little vest to wear if I would only seam it together!
