I came up with this idea due to recent StuffTM in my life which showed that I just can’t knit anything special when mad.
If you are the same, and ruin stuff when stressed then the following could help!
You should have your “madness” scarf nearby for when crapola hits so you can just take your stress out on one item rather than ruining your wonderful projects :)
madness scarf = grabbing ends of yarn, grabbing any size needles and knitting yourself calm.
Doesn’t matter if it isn’t pretty - the deal is to keep you sane and off your other projects until you are calm enough to go back to them.
