Hello. My name is Laura and I’m an addict.

I’ve noticed in the last year or so, an addiction has been creeping up on me slowly. At first I thought I had it under control. I wasn’t spending too much, I was enjoying it and finding other people to share my joy with. But then I realized I couldn’t not buy it. I couldn’t stop looking for it at work, at home, and whenever I had an internet connection. Last night I was just so restless I couldn’t sit down and concentrate.

My name is Laura and I’m addicted to knitting.

All of a sudden the world is all patterns and beautiful yarns. I have 12 million ideas going at all times, and I have knitting ADD. I can barely get one project on the needles before I’m working on two more. I need a long knitted sweater coat. Or this Koigu skirt. Or any number of books. Or a spindle and some roving to learn spinning. Or learning to crochet (my New Year’s Resolution).

It’s like crack. The more time I spend with people I knit, talking over creative ideas and looking at patterns and yarns, the more I need.

So now I’ve acknowledged that there is a problem. Is there a 12 step program for this?
