Knitter's anxiety
 
Ok, bare with me now.

When I'm not knitting I get fidgety and WANT that yarn in my fingers and those damned needles too.

When I'm knitting I can, at times, get frustrated at how long my projects take to finish (then I realise I'm knitting jumpers, vests, hooddies for goodness' sake and not egg cosy covers).

When I'm knitting a project I find it difficult to focus on the project at hand and get excited about my next one (even though I'm not sure what it might be).

Does this sound familiar or am I just a silly knit-wit??

You sound like a knitting junkie to me. :noway: Too familiar. :mrgreen: We must have our needles and yarn but resent the compulsion. I like having something smaller to work on when I get sick and tired of my larger project. I can get my knitting fix and get a break. This forum could be subtitled Codependent Knitters Unanimous. :teehee:

I call it knitters' ADD (attention deficit disorder). Always looking at the next project, the next yarn, etc. I guess this is the reason for all my unfinished projects. :shrug:

We've often joked that if knitter's went to KA meetings, we'd all bring our knitting, and 'share' our latest yarns and projects--not conducive to recovery!

It's normal! :thumbsup:

Sounds like me. The other day we were getting out of the car to go eat Chinese food, and my kids said, "DON'T bring your knitting in!"

No sooner do I get one skein of yarn, then I am looking at 3 others. My husband says I have enough yarn to knit everyone in the neighborhood (including several horses) a sweater.

Knitting a horse a sweater - now THERE's an idea!

Farq - it would take a truckload of yarn. Unless, of course, said horsey were a Shitland Pony.
