It really is a wonderful feeling when you complete a project. You get to say, I made that! Or I designed that! or Look what I built!
I get that proud feeling every time something is cast off the needles, or taken off the hoop, comes out of the oven. I love that feeling. So much so, I can hardly wait to post pictures here for you all to see!
I completed a sweater for the little man and I think the only thing that makes me more happy than the completion of a project is the smile on the recipient's face.
Men's Pullover, finally completed:

I was hoping to finish it before the warm weather hit and he outgrew it.

I was trying to explain that sentiment to the Little Man. That feeling of accomplishment. Right now he is in this stage where if it takes too long or he struggles, he does not want to do it all. So I suggested he make supper one night. He is capable. He can look for ideas and recipes online. If it works, great. If not, that is ok too. At least you give it a shot.
This is what he created the other night:

It is tofu, potatoes, and veggies.
It turned out really well. I wish I could tell you what he did to the tofu, but he didn't actually explain it. All I know, it was good.

Since the boys now each have a sweater, I am making a sweater for me.

I love that Malabrigo stuff. It is like knitting with butter. So soft....

I have also made significant progress on my socks,

There must be a support group for people like me out there. I am so worried I will run out of yarn. This is the second time I have had that horrible feeling.

Since we are having quite a bit of rain, I will finish my laundry and watch a little Orphan Black.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
