I've never really been one to play the field, to fool around on my chosen one.
But lately my mind and hands have been wandering.
My problem is that sometimes I just find that the one to whom I am sworn just doesn't fit with a certain situation. And then I feel like I deserve more. Surely I can juggle? Compartmentalise?
I ignore that voice in my head, that voice that has always kept me on the straight and narrow. The voice that says this can only end in tears. Neglect, exhaustion, slip ups. Betrayal.
I have totally ignored my own rule, never more than one at a time.
I have cast on and am knitting three separate projects at the same time. Madness.
There's the mindless stocking stitch but stuck at home due to tangly yarn project.
The highly transportable but requiring excellent light and concentration project.
The almost no counting and I can knit and walk at the same time commuter project. Admittedly I am designing this pattern myself so it is not entirely brainless, but I get to absorb any errors and call them design concepts, which will most certainly not wash with the Hanami (which is proving a tremendous challenge even with full concentration).
So forgive me knitting gods and goddesses for turning into a knitting tart and please don't turn them all into disasters for my sins. I am full of good intentions and attentive to each one when I am with them so it's not really betrayal is it?
