i needed to break up

Sunday, September 15, 2019

Yesterday it became clear to me what needed to happen.  I had been thinking about this for a while.  Some things just don't feel right.  Like the fact that I knit you on the wrong side.  See, things just haven't been good for a while.  And then the hole.  After I washed you.  I thought it was me.  That I did something wrong like dropped a stitch.  But, then I realized that it was a break in the yarn.  And then your neck.  It just didn't feel right.  I tried.  Honestly.  I tried to make you the right sweater for me.  
But things just couldn't go on any longer like this.  I'm sorry.  I'm going to need to break up with you weekender.  But please know.  It's not you beautiful Weekender pattern.  It's me.  It's all me.

  2. You are too funny. I just broke up with a piece I was halfway through. It was all me. I just could not picture myself wearing it. I could not think of anyone I knew who would wear it. It was time to reclaim the very lovely yarn but I still feel like I failed in a relationship somehow...
