Thanks guys for confirming that I've not gone completely insane!
On reading your posts, I'm beginning to see what's going on with me: learning how to knit Portuguese style has given me knitting ADD!
I moved to a different WIP today and got more completed in 2 hours that I could have in 4 hours of Charlotte-style English knitting. That portuguese thumb flick just ROCKS!
And I'm probably also gearing up mentally for the new job too.
Now to finish learning all of my increases and decreases... after ballroom dance class tonight with DH!
