Instant Gratification

I like to-do lists.  What I like about them is checking off the items.  I don't have a particular fondness for the actual tasks, I just like completing them! 

So what does this have to do with knitting?  I like projects that can be checked off the list in one or two sittings.  Today, I found that project!  I was at Depth of Field spending my birthday gift, and decided that remedial knitting needles were in order.  I picked out some size 15 dpns (that's double pointed needles for you non-knitters) and asked for some yarn suggestions.  The woman helping me showed me a few chunky wool yarns, and some acrylic blends, and then said that she knew a great pattern that knits up in only a few hours.  So here's my creation for the day!

Now that I have this project crossed off my list, maybe I can actually get around to finishing my multiple other WIPs (works in progress)!

  1. I love it! You should wear it tonight so I can see it in person. I also love instant gratification projects thrown in with my long-term projects and have 4 or so of them lined up. :)
