Finishing Fever...again

I sat knitting in bed, waiting for the pain medication to kick in. It still hasn't taken away the pain.

I managed to knit a few rows so I am officially finished more than 40% of the rug, almost 50%. For some reason, now I really want to finish it. I've got Finishing Fever again. I can't believe it. Maybe it's a cycle. Maybe soon I'll just be happy to just knit rather than wanting to have the completed project in my hands, ready to wear/use.

As I held up the rug, I felt like it was just too cute and soft to be a rug. Do I really want people to step on it? It's too thick to be a baby blanket.

I'll decide later.

I'm off to get more water, spray my aching throat, to try to get more sleep.

Good thing there aren't any cookies in the house. I might have decided I needed to finish them too.

I don't think knitter's ever get over "finishing fever." At least, I don't! [g]

Your rug is turning out lovely and I have to agree that I wouldn't want anyone stepping on it. Do you have an area in your house that's more decorative...maybe showcasing it under a little table, or something where it won't get walked on?

Take care...

I get "finishing fever" like that too. It's usually once I reach the halfway point. Before that, I couldn't care less (unless I have a deadline).

But once I hit that halfway point, it's downhill...the ending gets closer & closer, and I just want to finish ASAP!

I don't think there's a thing wrong with that. The faster you finish, the sooner you get to work on something new! :)
