The brick wall

My brain hurts. It really really hurts. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked up that @#$%& Kathryn Alexander hat, only to get stymied by instructions that make no sense to me. I’m feeling a little inadequate, so I think I’m going to have to break down and contact the designer.

Meanwhile, I have my husband’s sweater that I began in the fall of 2006, but since it’s been so long since I’ve worked on that one, I’m dragged down by inertia. It’s not a complicated pattern, so it’ll take me maybe five minutes to refresh my memory about the pattern and get going again, but it’s just.so.hard.

Ah well, but my brain is a-whirl these days, so I’m sure it’s to be expected, but I’m sure finding it all frustrating. The good news is that my job search is going quite well. There are folks in Boston and Baltimore eager to hire me—or at least, eager enough to fly me to their respective cities to spend the day with me. Hopefully one of them will turn out to be the job I really really want, and they’ll let me start when I want to, so that I can have a few more weeks off before leaping into a new job…

  1. Oh, I hate it when all of my knitting turns against me and leaves me with nothing that I want to work on. It’s moments like this when startitis hits. I’m glad to hear about the jobs, though — it’s great news! Of course, anyone with sense would want to hire you, but sometimes people don’t have sense when we need them to 🙂 Definitely contact Kathryn Alexander — better to ask the question and be able to keep working on it than to keep feeling so frustrated!
