Whoever says that "perseverance is a virtue" has never continued with something despite that sensible little voice in their head saying "not going to work, start again".
There's perseverance (eventually I will make this idea come to life) and then there is just plain pig-headedness (if I completely ignore all the things I don't like about this project, it will all work in the end due to the force of my persistence).
Tomorrow? A shawl that was 3/4 finished will be hitting the frog pond with an almighty splat.
and let's not mention the fully written pattern I have for this monstrosity.
