I'm thinking maybe you don't understand. And that's all right, I don't really either. I need to woman up and deal with my knitting problems, instead of passive-aggressively complaining about them online. I need to face the fact that one set of two-at-a-time socks should have just been ripped back to the beginning 10 days ago, because I could have reknit them by now. Instead, I keep waiting to do the more painstaking task of ripping back just to where I made the mistake, because that would SAVE ME TIME.

Yet knitting is supposed to be "extremely relaxing." It's supposed to reduce stress and anxiety. Oh, yeah? Then why am I SO STRESSED OUT? WHY?
I'll tell you why - I have 3 weeks to finish 2 pairs of socks and one scarf, and they are NOT COOPERATING with me. 3 weeks, or my knitting plans for the year will be irremediably derailed. I have a schedule, people. I need to stick with it.
So I can't for the life of me figure out why the above-linked article says that "knitting offers a break from busy schedules." What's up with that?
