Kid in a candy store

Wednesday, 3 October, 2012

You would think, given that I’ve been knitting pretty much nothing but swatches for FOUR MONTHS STRAIGHT, that I am certifiably insane would be a tad bit eager to knit whatever I want as soon as the final swatch came off the needles, which it did on Saturday afternoon.

Instead, because I am a glorious mix of slightly neurotic and type-a, I spent the first few hours after finishing having this conversation with myself: Am I done? I can’t really be done. Am I forgetting something? What if I’m not doing enough? Should I knit some more swatches that I already decided I didn’t need to knit just to be even more thorough? Aaaand, repeat.

Finally I got tired of myself and cast on another Porom with some Dream in Color Classy to shut my brain up.

HAT HAT HAT HOW DID I LIVE WITHOUT A GREEN HAT MUST KNIT HAT AND ALL THE OTHER FUN THINGS CAST ON MY ENTIRE QUEUE FOREVERRRRRR.

Seriously, you guys. I am so high on yarn fumes right now. This hat will be finished by the time this post goes up, and then I’m going to cast on a shawl and a cowl BECAUSE I CAN. Do you know how many times in my life I’ve cast on two projects on the same day? NEVER.

I’M FREEEEEEEEEEE*.

* Until this weekend. When I have to start working on the project again.
