I and many others here have mentioned how frustrating it is to be deep into counting or working a complex series of stitches, only to be interrupted by an innocent person who happens to ask a question or starts talking to you. We feel rude not to reply but try to restrain the impulse to figuratively stab the talker with a spare needle. The second time they do that, it's no longer a figurative desire.

Today DD gave me the answer: She said "ssshhh, Mom's wearing her thinking cap. Don't speak to her." I was wearing no such thing but it gave me an idea. I'm now keeping an old hat near my knitting and pop it onto my head before I start something complicated. Now everybody knows what's going on and peace has come to our household.

Happy New Year y'all !!

LOL - Love the idea of the thinking cap. I had this one flash into my mind: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/thinking-cap---brain

(it looks like a brain...)

What a good idea - I usually wait until DH is at work before I start anything complicated

I live alone and didn't think I had interruptions until this afternoon when I was casting on -- my 25 lb. Ragdoll was walking up the piano keys, jumped down and jumped up in my lap. Ooomph!

Great pattern! Also, a perfect excuse to use my corker! A dozen feet of 'horse-reins'! :-D Thank you for the link!

Unfortunately for me, the cats ignore everything but what they want to do. Since I've next to no hair, I wear a cap indoors three-quarters of the year. My darling never notices what I'm doing or wearing, so putting on my 'thinking cap' wouldn't stop his interruptions!

Brilliant idea. I usually just say whatever number I'm up to and say 'remember that number'.
