I can't believe I haven't been knitting for a MONTH!! 0.0
Seriously, books can influence your knitting time unbelievably badly!

Recently, I got lost into a whole bunch of fantasy series (recommended by KH members ) that I didn't even realize that I had not been knitting for almost a month, A MONTH! It was not until a short moment ago that I remembered this and decided to talk about it (just in case any of you are wondering where I went... not that if you guys would even remember me after my long absence, though )... Now I feel sorry for my poor yarn and needles... they've been left in my knitting box for really that long...

I must get back to my knitting sometime this summer, or else I'm afraid I would not even remember how to purl!

By the way, has this ever happened to anyone? just curious

So...... am I considered guilty?

Oh sheesh, this happens to me all the time, but I don't have nearly as good an excuse as you do. I wish I had time to fit a few books in there. I used to be an avid reader, and I haven't read a book in about 3 years (since my daughter came along ). I hope you had fun in your 'alternate reality' for a while... but it's time to come on home now.

That poor, poor knitting...

I often go into phases, as in a reading phase or a knitting phase. I will read like crazy, then knit like crazy etc. So yes, the same thing has happened to me.

I find that with kids around (age 11 & 13) they go about their business if I am knitting, but there is something about me picking up a book that makes them desperate to interupt me!!

So, I figure I will get lots of knitting done this summer!

Ahh, I'm glad to know that someone still remember me

Anyway, I'll still have to keep myself from getting completely lost into my fantasy series... funny how books are just as addictive as knitting... I'll have to admit it, though it might be a huge blasphemy to knitters
