It is official. I'm struggling not only with the SIMPLE things. After having to backtrack TWICE on this new project because 1) I repeated a pattern row twice and 2) I dropped a stitch, the light bulb began to come on.
First, I'd had to rip out the Echo Beach shawl I had started. THEN, there was a record setting eight rip outs of my first simple square! Not to mention that I've walked off the golf course each of my last two rounds after only 7 holes... yes, it. was. that. bad.
Now, I find myself struggling with this nice lace in a beautiful color (my favorite knitting)! YIKES!
Truth of the matter is that we are considering some big changes around here... and I generally resist big changes to the point of stressing myself out... even when the changes need to take place.
In retrospect, my lifetime of pre-change ANGST has always been worse than any change I've ever made.
I don't know why I struggle like this... And, I'd like to be able to just stop. But, until I figure that out, I can expect to be ripping back a lot of knitting. =(
How do you handle big change?
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.
Wishing you a wonderful week.... blessings ~ tanna
