Somebody smack me.
It was too good to be true. Yes. My March Sweater is finished. Yes. My March sewing project is nearly finished. And, Yes. My March socks are within a few hours work of finishing. However, all work on monthy projects has halted. See, I got a little too excited about the prospect of finishing early, and for some reason, outside my ability to comprehend, I have decided to work on a thing completely unrelated.
Not only am I upset that I'm sidetracked, I'm concerned the obssessive aspect of my personality is going to drive me to work on this new project and sabotage any chances I have to finally finish a month ahead, or at least ON SCHEDULE. I can't really begin to explain how or why I thought I couldn't wait until April to start Mike's birthday sweater...his birthday isn't even until April 25. I don't know why I can't bargain with myself to knit a few rows on Spring Pools inbetween cable repeats. And, I'm not sure why my own reflective awareness of the present situation, in no way, sets me straight. Isn't acknowledging the problem the first step towards solving it, or something like that...
