I think i'm addicted to this site/getting behind on my knitting WIPs - lol
does anyone else have this problem. when i'm not working at my job (which is about 80-90 hours/week - a BIG yuck), i'm on this site A LOT just reading and looking - WOW. what fun.

When i'm not on here, i'm on Ravelry, mostly looking at FREE patterns to add to my stash and plan on knitting.

There's the big problem. I'm spending so much fun time on both of these sites, that i'm getting behind on my WIPs because i'm using what little spare time i have on here instead of knitting -

oh well, just wondering if anyone else has that problem.

the one good thing is, i'm spending a LOT less time doing housework - lol - isn't that just awful? Now the time i used to do housecleaning, i'm KNITTING!

i guess i need to work on setting some priorities/limits........

Hey There,

I can say that I am definitely addicted to knitting these days and am eagerly awaiting my invite for Ravelry (i check the wait list almost every day!) I am not an expert knitter, but most recently I conquered my fear of knitting hats. What a breakthrough for me!

So happy to have sites like knitting help. It has been a lifesaver

I keep up on laundry.. it's just me, and I do loads between changing sites, lol.

However, grocery shopping & taking out the trash is getting behind...

Iwonder if I could hire someone to take out my trash, I know I can have my groceries delivered..lol But then i have to put them up.

I know, I know, i'm terrible..

Oh yeah, you're not alone. I am either on here or knitting...or doing schoolwork for my grad program, but that's an evil necessity.
The laundry has become a mountain. In fact the DBF and I refer to it as such and it has stages. Sometimes it's errupting and sometimes it's just smoking, but it's always there!

laundry is the one thing i do keep up on b/c it's so easy to stick a load in and go back to work or knitting. good thing my dh doesn't mind doing the dishes every day (thank goodness) or they would never get done - he even cleans the toilets!!! i'm soooo lucky
