Let me show you something.
I finished a thing. A shawl. And here is a picture of it:

I love it. I made this for a woman I know who loved my first shawl when she saw me wearing it. She wanted a deep red color with a black picot edge. I worked the pattern as written for the DK weight version of the shawl with a picot edge (You can also choose a garter edge.), except I added an additional repeat on the border.
The giver in me wants to make one of these for about 5 of my female relatives for Christmas. The realist in me says, "Nope. Your fingers will die.". Gift cards it is.
Now that this is done, I can get back to working on this tank top design.
