Knitting is a distraction and a diversion, absolutely. Disposable income goes to this hobby now, rather than music and books. There is a sizeable stash of yarn in the knitty room, waiting to be plundered at a momentís notice, cast on for a new travel project to keep from going all stabbity waiting in doctorsí offices or in airports. It accumulated over nearly ten years, although the acquisition rate has slowed. But is knitting an obsession? It is nearly a daily activity. Vacations have been planned around it (Rhinebeck). It might be the next career, in some form or another.
