What have I become?

So here's the question, am I still a knitter if I have replaced actual knitting with reading knitting blogs and obsessively playing on Ravelry?

To be fair, I have been kinda busy. I did have Harry Potter to finish (Thank you, J.K.!), and there was the wedding, and before that, the preparation for said wedding...But still, there has been no knitting. None.

Erin, of course, is concerned. I told her that maybe she was the crucial link between me and my love for knitting. And now that she's gone, I have no desire to do it anymore--it is just too painful. This is not true, but it was fun to make her feel guilty. ;)

Tee hee--no one can guilt you quite like a sister :)

Every once in a while, I start thinking about all the knitting I could be accomplishing while on Ravelry...but oh well. Ravelry is worth it!

Felicia said...

Yes, you're definitely still a knitter! The final HP book was fantastic.

I usually issue Ravelry warnings. It is so easy to replace actual knitting with reading about knitting, planning kniting, looking up patterns for future knitting etc etc. Ravelry is so freakin' cool though. :o)

That's what sisters are for!

Lauren said...

Ravelry is definitely dangerous in that way! My obsession wore off a little though and I'm getting more knitting done now.

I'm with you! I really have to stay off that Ravelry patterns page...

Kaet said...

hey, it happens, especially in the middle of july when there are harry potter books to be read! you'll get back in the mood before too long...

sulafaye said...

Ha! I had to come back to tell you that immediately after typing my comment, I hit my Ravelry bookmark without even thinking! Off I go!

Erin said...

Hmmm...I say if there is no knitting done by the end of the summer than you are simply a knitting poser.

I know how you feel. Now that school is back in session, it's so much easier to get my knitting fix by clicking some buttons rather than actually sitting down and picking up the needles, even though i totally love what I'm working on right now.

Oh, my, look at dem fightin' words Erin tossed out!

I haven't had time to knit lately, so I feel ya on this. I need to make time though...I'm feeling withdrawals...

I, too, have fallen into the black hole that is Ravelry... I can't seem to find my way out, either...

Kara said...

Oh no you didn't, Erin?! I'll show you.

You need to get out and see knitters in the flesh, not just the virtual world! You should come to SnB on Tuesday.

I will say HP takes priority. However you need to get back to your craft! P.S. Don't spoil HP I have to wait until all my prep for this stupid party is done then I can pick it up and read.

i'm 55 people away from getting into ravelry. i am afraid of how much time i will inevitably spend on that site. clearly no one can escape its power.

taking a break every once in a while is a good idea. I'm not so patiently awaiting my Ravelry invite.
