This time, it's not ME...

Dear DROPS Sweater,

You've heard the saying, "It's not you, it's me," right? Yes, we have all heard it at one time or another. Well, I'd like to say that to you today...actually, I've wanted to say that to you for about the last month. But there's a problem. It's not true. 

That's right, lacy DROPS Sweater. This time, it's not me, it's totally YOU! I've read and re-read your pattern, and I've knitted on you, off and on, for over two months. I've knitted and counted, counted and knitted, and I've watched the lacy diamonds emerge from my needles, and I have loved you. I wasn't crazy about your bottom border, but I figured that I would grow to love it as well. After all, I've grown to love less beautiful pieces...but it just never happened with you.

I'm not sure why or how it happened...I'd say that maybe it was a touch of PMS, or maybe it was the busyness of the whole Christmas season, but I'd hate to mislead you. I think we've simply grown apart. But there's see, I still love your yarn. I'm frogging you.

Rest in peace, lacy DROPS Sweater. We had a pretty good run, you and I, but it's over.

Headed to the Frog Pond...


  1. Farewell lacy sweater. Hello yarn in the stash!

  2. Sometimes you just have to let go and move on!
