Hi and welcome to the forum. I find that knitting is addictive. I just finished a sweater and a shawl this morning and my daughter took them home with her. Now I'm back on another sweater, a WIP. I was looking for some yarn I had misplaced and my daughter had the nerve to suggest that I hoard yarn!
I explained to her that it isn't a hoard it's a stash. She laughed.
Even when I end up ripping it out, there is just something about the process of knitting that I find therapeutic and, yes, fun. The folks here offer such good, friendly, useful advice and help...without knittinghelp I'd probably have given it up as a lost cause.
