we need to take a break... this doesn't mean that the chance for reconciliation is gone... it just means that i'd like to see other projects. i need something easy, quick, and fulfilling right now, and you were just becoming too much of a struggle and too complicated. the charts that i could follow but could never get the proper stitch count made me feel like i couldn't do anything right.
i must admit something to you: i had a one-night stand with a tan hat during trivia night this week... and i'm spending the weekend with a striped hat right now. they don't expect any more from me than some ribbing, some increasing, and a whole lot of stockinette. it's comfortable and familiar... and i need the satisfaction of a fast project -- something you can't give me.
i'll pick you up again sometime soon. hopefully this will give us both some time to rest and reflect on the mistakes of the past.
i always fall for those intricate, lacy projects because they're beautiful and they need to be understood... too bad that they have the propensity to be such a pain in the butt...
