the joy of finish
16 August 2009
Something of a recurring theme on this blog is my love of starting things and my problems with finishing. As part of my ongoing therapy (“Hello, my name is Alison and I’m a start-a-holic”), I am pleased to present…
A finished object!
:: Beret-style hat, in Woolganics DK yarn, ‘Chilli Pepper’
(the colour is a clear bright red, which doesn’t photograph well).
It’s for my mum. It did not take long. Finishing it felt so good, I squealed out loud.
It’s based on this one, which I made last year. Since then I’ve gotten much better at planning what needs to happen before I start, rather than improvising away and trying to fix the consequences of bad decisions as I go. I may even know what I’m doing now, and it might make finishing that bit more satisfying.
I’ve written up the pattern for this hat and you can find it here. Picture gallery over the jump.
