Often, I labor under the impression that my knits have to be superstars. Tricky, show-off knits. Usually, when I suffer this delusion I find myself not knitting but rather fretting about what I could or should be knitting. These thoughts do not promote productivity or calm. It is just plain exhausting.
Part of my time this past summer had been spent knitting one of the most poorly written patterns that I have ever encountered. It was not a difficult pattern, just really truly frustrating (a decent tech editor would save the day), and it has sent me running for the simple. In the round, stockinette with lovely hand painted or hand dyed yarns are terribly satisfying right now.
Done is better than perfect and warm is much better than worrying. I LOVE this sweater.
