Just like making a sweater
When you knit up a yarn, it looks entirely different than it did in the skein. Now I'm seeing that when I spin up a fiber, it looks completely different than the fleece. I know it seems obvious, but it just amazes me. This stuff has been sitting around for a year and now I love it and want to knit it! It also had this really boring name, un-romantic: Grape. Oh, it's SO much more, people.
