Latte Neck Cozy Part 2 - Riddled With Frustration

Well let's just say that I started this "new" project...over two months ago. The Latte Neck Cozy was supposed to be my pride and joy! Yet I find myself battling procrastination. The problem is that it is taking too long to complete. For some unexplainable reason, the neck cozy is not coming together as I expected. Literally, I have taken it apart and started over 3 times.

The first time I started over, I was 3/4 of the way finished. That is before I realized that I was crocheting in the wrong direction! Meaning... when I tried t pick the project up and begin where I stopped the previous night I began crocheting on the wrong side of the cozy. What the #@%$#%^%? So I unraveled the entire thing and began again.

The second time, I kept dropping stitches! Granted this is a different type of yarn - it changes widths throughout the skein ranging from less than 1/4 of an inch to 3/4 of an inch. But I didn't have this problem the first time, so why now? Needless to say, I unraveled the neck cozy again.

I have started the project AGAIN, but with little progress. I am no longer excited about my Latte Neck Cozy. This is a really simple project - I cannot believe I am experiencing such difficulties. Aaaggghhh!!!!

How frustrating!
I've had similiar problems.

Have you tried using a yarn that you love and are excited about? It might push you to finish your design.

The funny thing is I started off in love with the yarn. The love has worn off with each unravel and restart. Which I might add I'm getting ready to do AGAIN!
