Call me Buffy Summers, because I’ve slayed the vampire. OK, that’s a little dramatic, but man, does it feel good to be finished with my Vampire Project!
OK, I’m not technically 100% done with it. I’ve finished the knitting portion and it’s blocking away in my studio (I’ve even got two fans pointed at it, in the hopes that it dries sooner than later). As soon as it’s dry, I’ve got a little finishing to do; some ends to weave in and some last-minute additions.
It’s a huge weight off my shoulders- I was starting to worry about getting it done in time, but I think I’m good (unless it takes more than a couple days to dry). And, I’m so stinking pleased with how it turned out- it’s massive and absolutely gorgeous (I really wish I could show you now… but unfortunately, I have to wait until next year).
Now that I’m done, though, I feel a little at loose ends. You know that feeling when you finish a big project, or get done with finals, or get through a big stressful holiday, suddenly you don’t know what to do with yourself? Maybe I’ll break out a non-knitting craft, or maybe I’ll read a book, or maybe bake something fancy… I’m not used to having options!
Have you finished any big projects lately?
That is so cute! I loved BTVS, wonder if she ever felt the need to pick up a pair of needles to unwind after a long night’s slaying?
