A Love Letter and a Song of Despair

Dear Stockinette,

You know I love you.  I will always love you.  You are elegant in your simplicity.  You comfort me.  You entrance me.  There is no other stitch pattern quite like you.

You and me - we had a really good thing going.

But we need a break from each other.  And here's the reason why:

Pattern:  Jill's Dress by Kristina McGowan
from Modern Top-Down Knitting

Yarn: Knit Picks Simply Cotton Sport (100% cotton) in colorway Bittersweet Heather
11 skeins or approx 1804 yards

Needle size: US 4

This dress.  It nearly broke me.  Two straight months of stockinette.  Let's just say it was too much of a good thing.

Please don't be upset with me.  You are my first love and I will always come back to you.  I just need some time.

Surely you, too, must feel the effects of all that prolonged time together.  I know I can be difficult and demanding at times.  Forgive me.  Maybe I want too much...

But for now, I need some time to explore and figure things out.  I know I will return to you.  I can't say when and I can't say how.  But believe me when I say I will always come back to you.
