There you are, all pleased as punch, with yarn, needles, and project ready to go, in time you’ve set aside just for you to knit. You get to the complicated part…and approximately a third of the way through, people start interrupting you with long meandering conversations. Unwilling to snap their heads off (or maybe you are), you try to appear as if you’re actually attending to the conversation. When the interruption finally ends…you realize you’ve completely lost track. Aargh.
How do people cope with interruptions? Do you put a finger down on the pattern and refuse to move it? Do you politely request that people give you a second to finish the row? But what if it’s quite a LONG row? How do you put your concentration on hold during an interruption, and then snap it back on to laser beam focus afterwards, and successfully?
In other words, this is about the umpteenth time I’ve started this pattern over again…:oo:
