It took a while, despite my unforeseen break, knitting on a size 2 needle, making enough teeny little stitches to fit an adult human. But, finally, it's done, it fits perfectly and it's ready to wear once it's done blocking.
The long-anticipated moment has arrived.
My reward process…
1. A victorious Snoopy happy dance
2. Modeling it for my fella (who gladly indulges my joyous moment)
3. Updating my project on Ravelry and posting pics
4. Sharing it with my knitting community on Twitter and Facebook
But, I quickly move on to my next project. Like a yarn shark, I've gotta keep my knitting needles moving. I savor the creative journey as much as, well, maybe a tiny bit more than, triumphantly adding an FO (finished object) to my collection. The only thing that brings me greater joy is gifting FOs to others.
What's your ultimate reward?
Being done? Enjoying the finished piece itself? Moving on to the next project? Whatever your thrill, take time for a triumphant Saturday Night Fever strut. You worked hard and deserve to celebrate.
