Definately going to frog Artemis and start again using it as a meditative exercise to cleanse the mind of worries. Will just have to keep knitting 24-7 to keep the beasties at bay now!!
It doesn't work with cats though - my little furry beastie wants feeding and I haven't got him trained to understand not to interupt my knitting yet! Must go and feed him (yes he is greedy and has already been fed tonight, he is just fussy about what I've given him).
