Knitters Anonymous

"Hello... My name is Lori and it's been 5 days since I've knitted anything..."  Yes, that is kind of how I'm feeling right now.  Although for the first time in ages I have this sort of feel-like-knitting-but-don't thing going on.  I really do want to knit.  But I think my hands are embracing the rest and my body is in survival mode with today's crazy hot weather. 



My brain knows I should be knitting, knows I'll enjoy it, knows how much I need to get done - doesn't want to leave it to the last minute (and boy is it congratulating and thanking me for saying no to that latest test knit opportunity).  My body is drained, tired, weary.  It's like this when I'm really ill - knitting makes me feel worse.  The one thing that usually relaxes, amuses and inspires me all at once tends only to repulse me when I'm not well. 
 

However, my brain is correct - I do have a lot to get through, so I need to stop procrastinating with household chores (shouldn't it be the other way around?) and get the needles and yarn out and get knitting!!  Now, if only I could decide whether I wanted to start with the layette, the two-at-a-time baby cardigans, or the baby cardigan test knit....
