Ruled by impulses
All last weekend I could not stop thinking about knitting a tea cosy. I'd pick up my sock knitting, or blanket squares, knit for few minutes, maybe read a chapter or two in a book, then stop to look up tea cosy patterns.
Finally on Sunday night I decided I'd better do something about this obsession that was distracting me. I gave in to the nagging knitting idea, pulled out some lavender wool and some amethyst wool, found a tea cosy pattern with lots of explanations, and started knitting.
I feel much better now.
