We Do the Dance of Joy – Finished Knitted Object Friday

The  odious shawl is finished. Done. Finito.

No more ripping back. No more boredom. No more forcing myself to work on this project when I really want to be working on something, anything else.

I feel like this should be surrounded by crime scene tape or a chalk mark.

And now I am so happy, we do the dance of joy!

I feel bad for all of the negative emotions I’ve directed at this shawl. After all, it’s going to be a gift for a new mom in my family: someone who is going to need lots of good vibes.

I feel strongly that I need to do a project cleansing before I let this thing out of my sight. Something to restore the good energy and  happy gifting vibes.  Any ideas? Do I need incense?


  1. I used to live in a big old house. It had the BEST bathtub–really deep. Great bubble baths.

  2. Isn’t it funny how often “squishy new prettiness” turns into “odious sucker of time” by the end of a large project? I find displaying it someplace happy while working on something else for a few days generally restores the pride.
