It's amazing how therapeutic that can be, isn't it? I knit through board meetings now, because it's the only thing that keeps me from alternately digging my teeth into certain throats or bursting into great gulping sobs like a heartbroken three year old. At first, I tried to be polite, but now -- forget it. It takes just enough concentration that I can be there through all the annoyance.

Of course, I also knit through many of my classes. And in doctors' waiting rooms. And standing at the counter at the vet's office. And when I'm most anxious, well, I knit... I even have different projects for different anxiety levels! They're in ZipLoc bags, ready to go. Sometimes I have two or three projects in my school bag, in case my anxiety level varies...

I hope you enjoy your vacation.
