I was in a mindless knitting rut for quite some time. After chickening out on the steeks for my Deep V Argyle Vest, I had been working on Imogen, Featherweight Cardigan, and Cecchetti, all dead simple miles-of-stockinette patterns. It was really boring.
When I’m stressed out, I love that I can clear my head by focusing on knitting. My mistake was was working on projects that were too easy, so they didn’t take my mind off anything.
Within a couple minutes, I cast on for Bitterroot.
This has been exactly what I need to get back in the swing of things. I am very proud of Slither, and Bitterroot is a great pattern, so I can barely put it down.
It’s just involved enough that I have to watch what I’m doing, and have to clear my head. It’s not hard enough to be frustrating. Perfect!
