Forum addiction cutting into knitting time
I am getting rather addicted to this forum and it's actually cutting into my knitting time! Is that irony? (I never know if I use that word correctly). Okay, MUST do some knitting now - I'm going to try not to check back until tomorrow!!

I do the same...reading about knitting instead of actually doing it! Saving patterns like crazy instead of knitting them.

In the famous words of "The Monk"..."It's a blessing..........and a curse!

Irony: noun: incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs.

So yeah, I think its irony

I agree with Mason! Its time for an intervention.

Now wait a minute - isn't that irony too? A knitting forum intervention to help a forum member stop browsing the forum and start knitting
