My dictionary gives the following definition of "addict":
v. 1. To devote or give (oneself) habitually or compulsively. 2. To cause to become compulsively and physiologically dependent on a habit-forming substance.
Yep, that about sums up my relationship to yarn and knitting. I went about 10 days without knitting while we were doing all of our Christmas shopping and baking. I think that is the longest I've gone without needles in my hands in years. And let me tell you, I was getting cranky! Which is why I laughed out loud when I saw Yarn Harlot's blog post about gifts for knitter's including a t-shirt that says "I knit so I don't kill people".
I took that to heart, and decided to spare my family any more crankiness. I paused in the preparations, and took some time to knit. The result was that I finished the second sleeve of my lace pullover:
All I have left to do is sew the underarm seams, block it, and knit an edging around the collar. Whoo-hoo! Maybe I'll even be able to post about an FO before Christmas!
