6. The knots. Can any thread knot as horribly as cross stitch thread? Seriously, that stuff is crazy.
5. Not discovering a knot until you've stitched past it. I like the back of my work to look neat. That isn't possible when you've stitched two rows into a giant knot.
My cat wants to be in my lap when I stitch. That means that not only do I have to navigate around a big cat, but fur gets woven into my final piece. I'm guessing dog owners struggle with this too!

3. Running out of thread on the last 3 crosses. You've got one last row of 3 before you're done with the section of light mushroom beige. And gosh darn it, you're going to get it finished without starting a new thread, even if it means that your thread is shorter than the needle!

2. Pulling the thread completely out. You've got a nice long thread, plenty of leeway to pull through before you have to tuck the end under that first stitch. And you accidentally pull it out. Twice.
