I'm continuing my work on the Crochet Crowd June Challenge and it's coming along, I suppose, as best it can considering my condition. What condition is that, you ask? Well I'm sure you know someone with Crochet Attention Deficit Disorder. I know you probably haven't been diagnosed by a professional physician or psychiatrist (as my would husband tell it). Let me give you some of the symptoms and see if it sounds like anyone you know:
- Seeing an item on a store shelf and saying "I can make that".
- Browsing the internet and making a mental list of supplies for 7 simultaneous projects.
- Getting bored with one project the crafter can look to the left or right and see more than 5 WiP's.
- Upon entering a store that sells yarn the "itch" begins and will not cease until the crafter purchases a skein (or 12) and/or touches at least 20 soft fibers while exclaiming "Oh that's nice!"
I've considered sending in a research request to the people that came up with the DSM to see if this condition can actually be entered. There has to be hundreds of thousands, if not millions, afflicted with this condition. Just take a look around the virtual world and you can see what I'm talking about.
No one I know (besides spouses and significant others) wants this condition to have a cure. I certainly don't. What about you? Do you have Crochet Attention Deficit Disorder? Should we look for a cure? Do we want a cure? Maybe we should start a support group?
"Hello, my name is Karen and I have C.A.D.D."
All in good fun my friends!
Peace and blessings,
