Startitis - A knitter's insatiable urge to start a new project.
I've had it bad lately. Especially since I've been cleaning up my queue and moving things to my favorites list, using only my queue for things I know I will knit in the very near future.
I went to to my local Social Security office the other day to change my name to my married name. I had to wait over half an hour in line ... I could have been knitting, did I bring anything ... no.
So I thought I would start some plain vanilla socks for just this occasion (because I have to go to other places to change my name, like the Registry of Motor Vehicles).
So I took this yarn I got recently and split it into two balls to knit two socks at the same time on separate needles.
I start by winding the ball.
Then I use the scale to determine when I'm at the half way point.
Then I split it.
Only to find out the needles I need are already occupied by another pair of socks ...
Oh Startitis how you plague me so!!!
