By the time I returned home from work yesterday I was very much ready to get on with some knitting. This was because I knew I only had something like 6 short row toe rows to complete before I could kitchener stitch the remaining live stitches on the second of a pair of socks and get my most recent pattern soaked and blocking.
There’s a fantastic sense of accomplishment that accompanies a finished project or pattern, and for me it hits when I have the item pinned out or on blocking forms, drying. At this point I can stand back and admire it, slightly damp, but with all stitches neatly and attractively placed.
So, with that project ticked and completed, I decided to take some knitting with me on a little business trip today, and I was very, very good.
I did not cast on a new project. Instead, I packed up one of my current WIPs of shame and got a good bit of sock knitting done on the journey so that now all I have to do is knit a quick toe and I will have half a pair of socks. Hopefully the glow from my halo won’t keep me awake tonight.
