Are you like this? You get so excited when you start a project and you can't wait to see how it turns out, but then you get to almost the end and you just want it to be over? Or, you start another project before you finish the current one and when you get back to the second project - you're not as excited about it as you were?
Tell me, it's not just me. Who wants to be alone in that? I finished 'the color purple' afghan - which is my name for it, not the name of the pattern. If you know someone who really (i mean really) loves purple. Then this is for them. I was so excited to get this off the needles. I don't know why. It wasn't as if it took that long. I started after we came back from St. Louis and finished it early this morning. But that's just how I get - I am glad to see them come and go. There are some afghans I make that I'm very sad to see go - I must make one of those for myself so the separation anxiety isn't so bad.
This is what I'm working on now. I put it on the needles sometime last week and I (obviously) haven't touched it since. I shouldn't say I'm not excited about it - cuz the more I look and feel the softness of the yarn (I Love This Yarn) the more I want to stop writing and go work on it. The pattern is pretty interesting as well. The only question is whether I have enough of this color yarn to make it. I might be a little short on it - oh my, I may need to go to Hobby Lobby - gracious me, whatever shall I do?
