Somebody help me. I don't know why but often when I finish knitting a project, I feel let down. I look at my FO and think "meh."
I start off all keen and excited. I'm usually on fire during the knitting. When I get home in the evening I can't wait to get to work on my project. But it's not until I put the final touches on my project and step back and look at it that I get that ole let down.
I think, it's nice. I think I did a good job. But it's usually not what I envisioned.
Are my expectations too high? Am I disappointed to find that I am only human and it doesn't look perfect? I wish I could just enjoy my FO. Instead I usually just accept the feeling, stuff the thing in a bag or at the back of the closet and try to forget about it.
The let down doesn't always happen. Occasionally I make a project I love form beginning to end, but that seems to be the exception. Not the rule.
Well, here it is, my finished dragon, let down and all.
I think it's nice. Just not special. And it was a whole lot of work. I must say, I did have fun making it. Maybe I just miss the process?
