For the last week, this has been kicking my amply cushioned posterior.
The directions are extremely good, with every detail clearly written. The chart is large and easy to read. There is even an enlarged photocopy of the completed reproduction.
So, I read the directions for each section. I count from the chart. I look at the color photocopy. I look back at the chart because by then I've forgotten how many stitches I'm supposed to take. Then I take a stitch.
I used to think that figuring out double running stitch patterns created new neural pathways and helped stave off impending doom. Now I'm beginning to think it's having the opposite effect.
And I have another chamber to outline.
Do I fill in the satin stitch on this chamber before I do the double running on the second chamber, or will that just prolong the agony?
I'm going to sleep on it.
For several days, perhaps.
