I was driving down the road yesterday heading off to do one of a million things that had to be done when suddenly into my mind jumped a sweater pattern and the uncontrollable urge to cast it on. What? I have a perfectly lovely purple cardigan on the needles that is knitting up so quickly. I could be wearing it by the end of the month, or maybe sooner. But instead of seeing myself in this warm wooly sweater I am having a fantasy about another sweater. It’s green, a pretty light green with a hint of blue to it and has cables in the ribbing. I have the pattern. I have the yarn. I’ve even knit most of the sweater before but in a dreadful yarn that I will not even discuss. It’s totally doable. I could see myself plain as day warm and toasty in this fantasy sweater. What is my problem? Why can I not retain a positive relationship with my current sweater, whatever sweater that is? Why do I always want to cheat on it with another? It’s a good thing I’m not like this with men.
