For me Intricate Lace = Insanity
I must be insane. Yep. It has been confirmed over the last 10 days. I have been OCD over the damn SSS project. To the point where my husband has made comments about my stress level over the f'ing thing. Upon reflection I realize this SSS isn't my first attempt at lace. I started that super secret project over the summer and the original pattern was LACE. I was stressed out and miserable then too. Now here is the kicker..... Knitting, for me anyway, is about relaxing and fun. Something to do with my hands when I would be sitting and staring at that walls or TV. Knitting has become, since the summer, a social avenue. I have made some incredible friends in a few short months. Should I risk giving up knitting over lace? I think not. Insanity.... Repeating the same things over and over and expecting different results. So what I can't knit intricate lace. I do just fine on short repeating lace patterns. The cozy started out a little rocky but found its way nicely. Of course it is sitting on the bottom of my knitting bag because I got a wildly insane hair up my butt to knit the SSS instead. Well I say good riddance of the SSS and welcome back cozy.
