Making Things More Complicated than Necessary

Me: Purchases a pattern on Etsy, makes all the squares needed to make it, and lays it all out to follow the pattern exactly.

Also Me: Immediately scraps it all, edits the square pattern to be diamonds, and is actively mentally editing the pattern I bought to work with the squares as diamonds instead, and having to find other shape patterns (triangles) to make everything work out.

NGL, it’s actually looking like it might come out nicely. Only time will tell, but definitely leave it to me, someone who has never written a pattern, to over-complicate something as simple as a granny square vest.


Happens to me all the time! If i buy patterns sometimes I change a few things, and other times it just sparks something in me and i create a whole completely different item :joy:
