Feeling of Accomplishment

It's a wonderful feeling when you are finishing a project or getting close to finishing. It's also wonderful feeling good about what you are knitting verus dreading working on a project. For the most part I am enjoying the projects I am working on. I do have a few that I have put to the side for now, but know that I will eventually finish them.

I am close to finishing the Meilenweit Sock. I need to pick up stitches at the heel and then finishing will go quickly. Just in time for Easter since I am calling these my Easter socks.

I started another sock by Sheepaints. It's their bamboolaine line in Grapes. I am using size 2 needles on this sock as well and I like how it's striping. It's different than other socks I have knit since the stripes are wider.

I believe that for my next sock, I will try the monkey sock pattern using Dream in Color Smooshy. Can't wait to start these.
I have also finished one Awareness Ribbon Dishcloth. One down and two to go. I enjoyed knitting this pattern. I liked the size 6 needles for this cloth.

And, I finished the squidge cloth in Peaches and Cream. This was a fun cloth to knit.

I am just about finished with the front of my sweater. I should be able to complete that before the end of this week and then I can start on the sleeves. Yippee! I will be glad to finally finish this project. I have a black shrug that I haven't worked on for quite awhile. I only have a row or two to finish, so I will work on this next after my sweater is done.
Ah, the wonderful feeling of accomplishment when projects are finished or just about finished!

Wow! You really are on a roll. Sometimes, if I really love a project, and I finish it, I kind of get a little depressed, like we broke up or something.

Congrats on all of the finishing! Those socks will look fabu with your Easter bonnet!
