Sorry posted this on yesterday's comments section by mistake. So have copied it over here.

I think the knitting is a bit different, as a lot of knitters can knit automatically while paying attention to the external environment. But I can see how it could irritate.

With texting you are not present to the people you are with and it is no different to having a private conversation imo.


Your post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from a movie..."Life is a delicate negotiation"....I think you negotiated this one quite admirably!

I loved this post - it's like a mind-map of recovery. So grateful that you are willing to take the time to write about your whole process - from 1st thoughts to final actions. I tend to forget that it is the small decisions (inches, if you will) that often lead me to a different result. Thanks for all you do.

I am a meeting knitter, so I look deep within and decide I have no right to call out the texters. But I think texting is really injurious to a meeting and it needs to stop. Who is going to speak up? We are none of us "without sin," so will no one ever address this?


Mr. S.P.: So happy to hear you've opened your home and heart to kittens! I missed hearing about the antics of EOC! Here's wishing you much joy from your new furry friends!


I just found your blog by accident. I was a. homeless drunk for almost twenty years but have just celebrated 18 months and now live indoors. I gradually stopped going to meetings and have become miserable again. It's serendipitous that I received that inch Ive been needing so desperately lately. I'll be going to a meeting soon.
