This knitting is addictive!
Okay, I was up WAY too late last night knitting (well, I guess technically it was early this morning...), and I'm only working on my practice stuff for my beginner class. I haven't even started a "real project" yet!

I think I'll be in trouble when I start my first project...I'm being sucked in and I won't be able to put it down.

What fun!

The only way I can get myself to bed earlier is by telling myself that the sooner I get to bed, the more I'll be able to knit in the morning! There's so much I want to try my hand at in knitting, and I only have so much time, and only two hands.

OK so up until about a month ago, I used to play world of warcraft obsessively until the small hours of the morning. I quit and went 'cold turkey' but took up knitting again - I'd last knitted around 20 years ago. Initially I had early nights, now I find myself staying up later than I did when I was playing WoW :XX:

:D Oh, baby...Ingrid is soooooo right...u grow to love seeing the mail/UPS/FedEx truck coming For instance, last night I ordered 2 balls of this yummilicious Opal yarn from our wonderful Kemp's Store (ordered it last nite-it was shipped today ) and today I ordered yarn from Elann to knit a top for my sister...so I will begin to stalk the mailman shortly :rofling:

Yup...knitting is addictive all right, and so is buying yarn. I think I have enough sock yarn to make about 20 pairs of socks...it's so easy to buy because you only need 1 or 2 skeins per pair and there are so many different kinds to try. And then there's the non-sock yarn...I hope my DH doesn't look in my closet... he'd faint if he knew how much yarn I have.

When it comes to bedtime...hmm I seem to be staying up later and later nowadays. I think it has something to do with the phrase...just a few more rows.....

And don't forget ebay. I trawl through yarn on there for hours.

It is addictive. I've knit until my hands hurt, but didn't want to stop!
