Even though the fear of being cast aside and run out of KH with torches is intense, I just had to come out with it.
Oh, Jessica, I just had a "Young Frankenstein" flash!
Now, do not be silly! I cannot speak for anyone else but... I have done this before. I worked forever on a stunning throw for a college graduation gift for a very dear friend. I had known this child since she was 12 yrs old and her going to college was huge - never mind graduating with honors! I was so proud of that work and waited anxiously for some response and.... nothing. For MONTHS I heard nothing. At that point, I put away my needles and packed all of my yarn stash into my cedar chest. I was hurt and angry and feeling like, "why bother". It took a while but one day... I was ready to knit again.
It's OK to take a break! Plus... let's be honest here, burning torches and knitting do not go together! Do you honestly think anyone here would risk their WIP? Now pitchforks are a different story but I wouldn't worry too much about the torches!
Just relax! Angela
