When something comes off the needles. The sheer joy of it can at times be magical.
One of those times where you are proud of yourself because the pattern, the yarn, and the color all came together swimmingly.
Dew Drops Shawl by Bex Hopkins
yarn~ Quince & co Finch in the color Peacock
needles~ size 5-3.75 mm

Adding to the happiness of it all, you now have created something you will get to wear. Ah, to be a knitter. Am I right?
But wait, you have another project come off the needles. Now we are talking about a serious blocking party now.
Pattern~ My own basic Vanilla
Yarn~ Spinning Fates Toula in the color Mike and Sully
Needles~ US 2-2.75 mm
Granted there are probably better feelings that one may experience in their lifetime. Maybe giving birth to a child, falling in love, or winning the lottery. But I can say this is a pretty cool feeling as well.
Is it possible that this accomplishment will now drive the need to finish all the WIPs? Am I chasing that high? Trying to duplicate the power one feels when completing something?
You tell me, when you finish a project, does it make you want to finish more? Or could it be that instead you feel the need to celebrate by casting on all the things?
Have the best day today!
