According to Wikipedia : Cabin fever is an idiomatic term for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a person or group is isolated and/or shut in, for an extended period. Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, forgetfulness, laughter, and excessive sleeping. The word is also used humorously to indicate simple boredom from being home alone. The term was first recorded in 1918.
It's a symptom many of us who live in a cold/snow region are experiencing right now, including me! So to enter my 500th post contest, leave a comment by February 7, telling me what you do to help combat 'Cabin Fever'. And yes, you can enter even if you live in sunny Florida or California or even Hawaii - I'm sure many of you suffer from your own form of cabin fever!
I had been trying to decide on a prize for this contest, when I turned to the January 31 page in my "Never Not Knitting" Calendar where the Yarn Harlot suggested that I spend the weekend 'stash culling'. So, I'm going to take her up on that, and the result of my culling will become the prize for this contest - a box of ???? yarn to the winner of the random drawing.
