My Fix is IN
And All the Rest

Sometimes Mondays

Oh, man.  Sometimes Mondays look like . . .

letting go.

You can convince yourself that . . . it's just the laceweight.  (Because things always look wonky with laceweight.

But then it becomes all too obvious on the last row.  (That satisfying last row, y'know . . .  that really pulls everything together.)  
That there is Something Very Wrong.
Something you really should have caught (and done something about) 8 or 10 rows ago.

Because half-way through the final row, you can see that . . . everything is not pulling together anymore.

You apparently lost the plot.  Right there in the middle of a row.  8 or 10 rows back.
(Turns out it wasn't the laceweight.)

And so. . . it is not to be.
Not now.  Probably not ever.
Because you don't have the time.  
Or the energy.  
Or the mindset.  
To fix this.

I'm sure there's a metaphor in there somewhere.

But I'm not going to find it now.

Sometimes Mondays . . . show you that letting go is the only way.
(And it's going to be just fine.)

This sounds like a true lesson in letting go, but you are so right that it's going to be just fine. It's very easy for me to get fixated on details and lose sight of the big picture, so I thank you for sharing this lesson with laceweight.!

Vera

Oh! so sorry. But you are right, let go and all will be fine. Breathe deeply.

Bridget

It's a hard lesson, but I have to admit it's one I keep learning over and over.

Better to admit it and move on than drive yourself insane about it.

Oh no!!!!!!! That totally sucks!! Wish I was closer because I'd work on the fix for you! I am in awe of your letting go skills. XO

Carole

That's a bummer but your attitude about it is great. And, in the great scheme of the wedding, it's a minor thing that you can do without. But still. Sorry!

Annette

That's what right, "love 'em or leave 'em", "pick your battles", "let it go- let it go", . . .

Debbie

I'm so sorry this didn't work out, but I admire your attitude. Yes, everything will be fine!

Jo

They say that breaking up is hard to do...

Sometimes letting go is the best thing all around. I hope Erin isn't disappointed and you have no sense of guilt over letting go. Hopefully, it's freeing for all of you! xox

Patty

Ugh. So very sorry to hear this but...hopefully you feel okay and good that you were able to leave the pressure of addressing it behind! XO

Vicki

Oh boy! Things have a way of sorting themselves out... as you head into the last week/days before a wedding!! Stay cool, Kym. xoxo

Sorry that it isn't going to work out, but priority goes to enjoying the day and being there for and with your family, rather than for the knitting! It will still be a wonderful day!🥂❤️

Pam

I'm sorry - and sorry I don't live closer - it might not be the same, but I could try to fix it. But yes, this weekend will be wonderful without this -- perhaps better because you are letting go. It's not the main thing. Hugs -- and enjoy the wonderful, important parts of this week!
