You know you're obsessed when...
My son & I tripped over each other & fell in the street yesterday. He skinned his knees very badly, I landed on my knee and hand- and thought I broke it.

My very first thought after caring for my son was-

"OH NO- I hope I didn't break it- because HOW CAN I KNIT WITH A BROKEN HAND?"

It isn't broken but 2 bones are very bruised. Typing hurts and is slow. It's swollen and in a splint- but I will be OK. Especially in a couple days when I can knit.

LOL! At least I am not alone in my knitting obsession.

Still sore but typing is easier today- this weekend I will pick up my needles & try it!

a piece of advice from one's who has been there....don't overdo it your first few times. You'll think you're fine and then it will suddenly hurt like EVERYTHING!! just do a little bit at a time at first and work back up to your normal amount of time.
hang in there.
