How can someone determine if they are obsessed? I watch TV and feel guilty if I am not working on one of my WIPs. I watch intently to see if anyone in a movie or on TV can be seen knitting. Since I am not sleeping well, I automatically decide that it must be because I haven't had time to do much knitting. I keep searching for new patterns that might be fun over the long haul. I'm already thinking about what project I should take when I go on a trip in October. When I'm working and reading about Canadian history I wonder what things women knitted. When I'm working and writing my book on Ireland, I keep looking for that "perfect place" to insert a sidebar about the Aran pattern. And, when I am working and writing my book on antidepressants, I wonder if these people would be better and med free if only they knit.
Nah, I'm not obsessed.
