I have "general craft withdrawal".

I find myself drawing plans for dresses and skirts on scrap paper EVERYWHERE for this reason.Back in middle school and high school the teachers would constantly complain that the backs of my tests and margins of my work were not sketch pads.

LOL - happens to me all the time! If I go all day without picking up my needles, I usually have to get at least 30 minutes or so in before going to bed. I can truly say I'm addicted.

yeah i have been trying to figure out a way to describe it... but if i put my needles down for a while, i wont even think about it until a random design pops in my head... and this ultimately appealing feeling rushes into and makes you get up and find the yarn and needles. i did a 45 minute drive once because all my knitting stuff was at my ex husbands house.. i drove all the way cuz i didnt want to buy new stuff when i had my collection there.

The last time I didn't knit was because I couldn't knit!

But yes, I thought about picking up the needles! Just couldn't.

BIG TIME!
I know exactly what you mean and the feeling is hard to explain. On days when I have to go in to work early and sleep during the comute I feel "off" all day until the comute home when I do knit.

I am having knitting withdrawal as we speak. I am waiting for my yarn to arrive via UPS for my next project. As a newer knitter, I am finding that I can't just pick up a project and knit to be knitting. I have to be motivated to be able to figure out the pattern, and all I want to do is knit the project that I bought this yarn for. It is supposed to be here on Tuesday (hurry up already!!!)
