It’s final

I have decided to quit knitting.

I mean, I love it, but it’s something that’s really not good for me right now; I have many other commitments that I’m not honoring, because I’m always distracted by knitting. Take last night, for instance. I should have worked on the newsletter that I do for a group that I’m in, and instead I sat on the couch and knit and watched The Notorious Bettie Page (good movie, by the way).

So I’m going to quit knitting, and get all those things done that I really should be doing anyway, and devote more time to exercise and to my Thursday class I teach.

Sorry, guys. It was a hard decision, but I had to make it. Email me if you want to talk about it.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
