Why Can't I Finish These?

Calvin mittens. Fleece artist sock yarn and size 2 double-points. (Is there any other size?) 16 stitches times maybe 8 more rounds. They've been sitting here like this for at least three days. Maybe more. I just can't finish them. It's taking longer to write a post about them than it would actually take to just finish them. Seriously. I'd rather sit here and write nonsense and gibberish about not finishing silly mittens than sit and finish knitting them. You're probably not even reading this far anyway. This paragraph is much too long by now. You just looked at the picture, read the first couple of sentences, and snickered to yourself about how that silly drunken monkey never finishes anything. You've already clicked on to the next knitting blog on your list. That's okay, though. I forgive you. I know you were hoping for more than just an unfinished pair of mittens today. Maybe tomorrow.

I don't know what size 2 is in mm but those look like small needles. I could get up and look on my gauge but I have a cat with his head pressed into my leg. I am quite fine with your paragraph, it's very stream of consciousness. I can relate to that. I have an unfinished scarf (I'm so not talking to it), unfinished slipper (I hate picking up stitches), and an just started MONKEY!!!! MONKEY!!!! Nothing wrong with an unfinished mitten, just saying. If you ever need an instant gratification FO...

I'll finish your mittens if you'll fix my sweater armpits. :) I've screwed up so bad I'm totally demotivated to work any more on them.
