I have Post-Project Syndrome.

PPS occurs most often upon the completion of a large project such as a ginormous shawl or a sweater for one's much larger significant other. (Or socks for someone with really big feet.)

PPS is characterized by an inability to cast on for a new project and a marked lack of interest in even finding one of the many UFOs stashed around the home. Other symptoms include a stack of knitting books and magazines beside one's desk with little slips of paper marking possible patterns.

Severe PPS may include the inability to stash-dive. If PPS progresses to the point whether the sufferer is not interested in shopping for yarn, cashmere is the quickest cure to lure the PPS victim back to the fold.
