I used to stay away from repetitive patterns; because, after I learned the basic sequence, I got BORED. I like variety, so doilies and patterns that change are generally my favorites. But now that I am SWAMPED, I am appreciating a predictable pattern more.
The Summer Breeze sweater pattern that I have been working on for awhile has been pulled back out. It is perfect to work on when I go to wait for a dental cleaning, to pick up a prescription, or during whatever other unavoidable wait times I encounter. I have almost completed the upper back during these times!
So many times I think, "I want to finish my butterfly, but I don't have the brain power to tackle that right now." But I CAN pick up Summer Breeze and crochet a few stitches without having to tax myself at all. I have even taken to doing it while the boys are doing their science experiments and I just have to be a supervisory presence. :)
So, I've been playing Hooky without bowing out of my responsibilities! Hip-hip-hooray!!!
Happy Hooking to you as well!!!
With great satisfaction,
