Keep Calm and Carry On

This pattern hurts my brain. I want it to be done in a bad way. Actually, it's really not a very hard pattern. My overly analytical Virgo brain makes knitting it much more difficult than it really is. Splitting the back & fronts AND shaping the neck and armholes interrupts the hexacomb pattern. Due to this I'm finding it hard to calculate where in the pattern my rows now start. I'm sure I'm waaaay over thinking it (as I do with everything) and as a result I'm not enjoying this as much as I should. I practically have a panic attack on each row. I'm using every ounce of my willpower to push forward and finish this thing. I can do it. I can do it. If I repeat that will it help? It's worth a try.

Pattern: Hexacomb Cardigan from Interweave Knits Spring 2008
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Taupe

I'm at the same point in the pattern and I'm having the same brain block.
