Happiness on a Stick

I knit on a sweater all winter.  I challenged myself to knit another Aran Staghorn sweater.  I started in November and knit and knit and knit.  I didn't  "love" the sweater, but I knit just the took forever.  Maybe I should name it the "Forever Sweater".  I finally finished last week and it is pinned down to my mother's spare bedroom floor as we speak.  I am not sure why I wasn't loving it.  It will be warm and I can wear it out and about when I take walks and such.  I think I was wanting a cardigan.  I will share a picture soon.
As I was finishing the sweater on worsted weight and size 8 needles, I longed for a small needle project.  As soon as I finished I cast on for the two at at time socks on size 1.  A big difference.  I bought this yarn at a fiber festival in southern Indiana last fall.  It is brighter and prettier in person.  It is a little happiness on a stick.  
Also, I get to go spin more of the Polwarth wool tomorrow.....looking forward to it very much.
