I can so relate!  I have a bajillion (a lot) of projects in my queue, so what did I do?  I bought yarn to make a Lady Eleanor stole.  And I also keep thinking of new gift projects I could make.  I have the sickness too!

We all do it.  This feels like a support group half the time Cheesy

I was thinking about this very subject a week or two ago (wrote about it here)(sorry.  shameless of me.) and realized that it's totally fine to be thinking about it all the time.  I seem to work out a lot of the iffy bits or stuff that wasn't working when I think about it at odd times which makes the actual knitting go smoother.  

If only I could figure out a way to knit or spin at my desk at work without it getting in the way of my actual work...

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I took up knitting to beat my addiction to tobacco, but now I'm addicted to yarn Grin
a much healthier addiction, by far. More productive, too Wink

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Safetyfox: I quit smoking a little over a year ago and had at the time thought about using knitting to help keep my hands busy.

I have been relapsing a little here and there when I get stressed out or if I'm at the bar, but maybe I will start trying to knit instead. Knitting at the bar, woo!

I stood at the door this morning with all of my work bags, gym bag, lunch bag draped over me and knit "just one more row" on the scarf I started last night.   Grin

Sometimes, when I've been knitting a lot, I close my eyes and see my project - like it's burned into the back of my eyes.

That's how my LYS owner got into knitting, too.  It makes me giggle because it's just as compelling of an addiction  Cheesy

Knitting at the bar, woo!

At the moment I'm on a really strict diet so I can't smoke OR drink OR eat in the pub! So recently I've been taking my knitting along... I've had a few funny looks but it's my local, so they're used to me Cheesy

Ooh. I'm in the same boat. Unfortunately I have the problem of it being the WORST year of school ever, and less and less time each week. Argh.

But then I try to knit on the bus... even though knitting on the bus makes me nauseous. But I must finish the "random practice pieces" I'm doing. Ha.
