I love that point in a new knitting project where you realize that you’re on the way to something. There’s something good on the needles, and you’re past wondering if you like what’s emerging as you knit.
It happened when it was time to add the second color to my Zephyr Cove shawl. I get to make stripes! And the little picots, too! And Loft in garter stitch is the best thing in the world!
This is knitting. This is the because to the why.
