Then succomb to Peer Pressure:
"Keep Knitting Mommy or Elmo gets it!"

Worry about an intervention and seek shelter in other activities. Photography is good:

    Must avoid this addiction at all costs, I could get swamped & grandkids are a good 10 yrs away at least.

    I don’t see how threatening Elmo keeps you knitting. :)

    Is there a cure for OCKD (same as OCD but the K is for knitting)?
    If so, I wanna stay far away from it :)

    I knit on the train, watching t.v, in the cinema, on car journeys, in meetings and any time when I’ve got to wait. I knit inside, outside, standing up, lying in bed…everywhere except the bath (and one day I’m going to have a knitting deadline which may well see bath-time knitting…).
    It’s not obsession, it’s productivity, female style.

    Works for me! (and Ida, while watching Gilmore Girls on DVD w/ friends, I’ve made them stop the show so I could sketch sweaters. If its real time tv, I’ve learned to sketch at the speed of light. Now if I could just knit them that fast…)

    LOL. Can I relate. I watch TV and notice the sweaters more than the program, often thinking, “That wouldn’t be so hard to do.” Then there are the non-knitted clothing items that I am sure would be much better looking as knitted.
