The Last Ten Percent

Why is it that the last 10% of any project is the most difficult to finish? In the case of knitting, if it's a gift, it takes forever to get around to blocking it. Or in some cases, you get the yarn, pattern, and all the bits you need for a really quick knit... and then it sits there.
A gift knit made with handspun.

No longer! I have been spending the last couple days knitting away at my gift knit stack. I have finished 3 out of 8 with a pretty good idea of what I am going to do for the remaining gifts. I also managed to get another design out of the way. It is in the Free Tester's Pool to be test knit. So if anyone is interested in making a Hero of Time Hat, sign up.
This picture makes my face look fat. It isn't. I was just looking down.

The last bit of a project usually goes pretty quickly for me, but I totally agree that I always put off blocking! Lately I've just been making a pile of fo's and then blocking them in a big batch.

Well done! I love that gift hat - the yarn looks lovely and hand-spun'ish. Your new hat pattern looks very nice too. Doesn't it feel so good to finish a project off though!
