I googled the How-To language above on an impulse that might better have been used doing something else.
Not surprisingly, there are blog or journal notes from people taking a break FROM their currently frustrating knitting projects.
There are discussions of taking a break for wellness in a long stretch of otherwise uninterrupted knitting.
Here and there are a few sightings of other creative work done while knitting activity was on hiatus.
A few photos with feet up or tasty treats readily at hand speak to a nice holiday from everything, with knitting as the honored guest at the party.
Me, I need something of a lesson:
HOW can I GET the KNITTING back INTO my SCHEDULE ?!?!
Why yes, I would love a little cheese with my whine.
Meanwhile, everything's fine here.
Pardon me if I indulge in this hasty dramaqueen moment.
I'm simply announcing to myself that my hyper-productive schedule has swung its pendulum too far from the knitting zone. I may have to make myself close the door and knit for a half hour when it's supposed to be suppertime.
Sometimes it helps to say it out loud.
It also helps to have a piece of chocolate.
