When I don't get enough sleep, I start coming up with strange ideas. Heck, I come up with strange stuff even when I'm not tired. Anyway, I'm starting a Jeff Foxworthy style post... about being addicted to knit. Feel free to add to the list... :D


If you have ever told someone your favorite gem is Purl, you might be addicted to knit.

If you have ever made up knitting songs and sung them as lullabys to your children, you might be addicted to knit.

If someone has ever asked you what hand you write with and you answered Continental, you might be addicted to knit.

If you have every turned down a job offer because you wouldnt be able to knit and work at the same time, you might be addicted to knit.

If you have ever rolled around in your yarn stash, you might be addicted to knit.

If you have ever planned a family vacation so that you could tour a yarn factory, you might be addicted to knit.

You constantly are thinking of sock designs

EVERYWHERE you go you look for something to do with knitting

You wake up with design ideas

You don't sleep bc you don't want to stop your project

my list could reallly continue.................... ;)

:roflhard:

When every request made of you starts with, "When you're done with that row, could you . . . . . . "

When you've taken more pictures of your knitting than of your children. . . .

When 99% of your credit card bill is for yarn . . . . . .

When you wish you had a guest room--not for company, but for your stash . . .

If you're watching a serious point in a movie and thinking, "i could knit that hat..." instead of listening to the dialogue... (me, last night)

If you're polling family and friends if they know anyone who's expecting a baby because you're dying to try out a new pattern/yarn....

If you loiter in your local LYS with no real purchase in mind but want to be NEAR the yarn... (me, and i admit this behaviour is kinda creepy!)

If you drive past a sheep farm and think of numbers of sweaters, not rugs...

If you look forward to a 7+ hour car ride because it will give you uninterrupted knitting time...

You SWEAR you hear the lonely clicking of your needles in the night when your project is sitting in the living room..just longing to be worked on..click, click..

You wake up with sweater shaping ideas in your head.

You wake up and your bed is covered in yarn that was not there when you went to sleep...and you are groping a skein or two.

when you see chopsticks at a restaurant and they make you miss your needles

when you stare at the chopsticks and estimate what size needles they'd make

when you sit at your desk and see the sign for building column number 3K6, you think "knit 6"

likewise, any mention of K2 Skis makes you think "knit 2"

when, at home, your kid looks through the house for you, comes outside, sees you standing in front of the washer, and asks, "are you felting again?"

when you're buying something, the total is $6.60, or anytime you see the number 660, you think, "price of a hank of Cascade 220!"

when your kid goes to school with yarn bits stuck to his shoe

Ingrid
08-29-2005, 03:13 PM
When you have a ball of alpaca in your car to hold during traffic tie ups . . .

When most of your reading for pleasure involves your knitting books . . .

When you save a box of yarn that arrives in the mail to open later because you want to savor the moment . . . .

When you think of a great trip to Minneapolis to go get some baby-nephew lovin' will be a drag of a car ride because dh can't go and I can't be the passenger and knit my way there... (this will be me this weekend)

You hear a flash flood warning on the TV and immediately wonder "is my yarn in a moisture proof containter downstairs?"

You refer to certain skeins of yarn by the vacation spot you bought them at...

When you look at new areas of the house to put in a built in cupboard, JUST for your knitting supplies.

When you buy a sewing machine so you can make yourself a decent knitting bag.

When all your preferential links in EBay are all pointed towards Craft / Knitting.

When even though you've just purchased a set of Boye Interchangeables, you are wondering how you can get away with buying some Denise's 'just in case' you don't like the Boye's.

When you buy a set of needles at lunch for one project, but can't wait til you get home, so go buy some yarn to start something else at work when no one is looking.

When you start looking at handbags wondering how they'd function as a knitting bag.....

Dang Aaron,

Would have thought you would have caught this one by now....

If you go to a Knitter's Anonymous meeting and you take your knitting bag, you might be addicted to knit.
-------

If you have ever plotted out all of the LYS in your area on a map, you might be addicted to knit.

If you got married and your local LYS owner was your Maid of Honor (or Best Man), you might be addicted to knit.

If you are asked, "How you are doing?" and your answer starts with a variation of "The yarn is..." or "The project is...", you might be addicted to knit.

If you have ever answered "Project Manager" to the what do you do question, you might be addicted to knit.

If every picture you see (wedding photos, baby pics, magazine spreads, etc.) prompts your now signature response of "Oh, I could SO knit that!"

And even more so if you then head home as fast as possible to start creating the pattern.

earthchick
09-24-2005, 10:31 PM
If you go to a social event and all you can think about is getting home so you can knit (me, tonight).

If you take your Patternworks catalog to bed with you every night and fall asleep dreaming of yarn.

If you have a million other things to do but just keep telling yourself "Just one more row...."

If your children's new favorite game is "how to get all tangled up in mommy's new yarn."

If you get upset when your cat drags a new ball of yarn out of your knitting bag and drops it in the living room. Not because she messed up your yarn (she didn't) but because you didn't want your dh to know you'd bought more yarn. :blush:

If all your internet bookmarks are for knitting sites or free patterns.

If you can't think of anything new to talk about with people b/c all you do and all your think about is knitting. :doh:

:roflhard: :roflhard: That is so me!!!

If you find yourself wondering more about the pattern they used for that cute cabled pullover thet the character on TV's wearing than the odd psychic baby the character has .... (the show's great, but that sweater was YUMMY, had this really interesting neck shaping for the hood... :thinking: but it would probably take size 5 or 6 needles, it would be very time-consuming.... :shock: IM DOING IT AGAIN!!!!)

If your son was ever (almost) late for school because Mommy was knitting and didn't notice what time it was...

If you try to encourage all your friends and family to try knitting, and can't understand why they think you're weird...

If all future career aspirations have been put aside, because now all you want to do is own your own LYS....

If you're excited about being stuck in a car with three males for 1200 miles and 24 hours... because at least ten of those hours can be spent knitting!!

If you suddenly notice the increases and decrease in your (store-bought!!!) socks ....

If you suddenly decide that everything in your house needs a cozy...

If you judge how weird your dreams are by how strange the stuff you knit in your dream was...(I dreamed I was knitting a sweater out of my ugly carpet, I swear :rollseyes: )

Kelly! This is me -- I take my knitting bag back and forth to work every day - even though I never get a chance to knit during the day. I call it "field trips". I take my knitting on field trips! I take it with me -everywhere - in case I'm in a traffic jam (in Greenville, South Carolina!?!?!?). I've even tried to get in a couple of stitches at red lights. I don't really recommend this unless you can ignore horn-honking.

You may be addicted to knit if you wait to hear your DH snoring before you stealthily pick up your project, so he won't think "you'rr addicted to knit".

:XX:

OMG! I've been so sad all morning because I left the baby kimono at home. I'm almost to the transition row where stitches get put on holders and casting on happens, so I knew it wouldn't be a good idea. Plus it's raining and I haven't finished reading Monsieur Rousseau for my 11:20 class (so what am I doing here?). But I seriously thought about casting on my next project before we left the house this morning. 98 stitches in 12 minutes, I coulda done it! :rollseyes: I think I have a real problem... :lol:

Man, am I glad I'm not the only one! My problem is that I don't get enough sleep as it is. So when I stay up too late knitting (too late as defined by DH...NO self-respecting knitter would EVER claim there is such a thing as too late to knit!!!), DH fusses at me to go to bed earlier. He says it's just because he doesn't wanna hear me whine about how tired I am. But I know the truth...sometimes, he's just a knitta hata!

Nah, I'm jk! I :heart: my DH. Hey, he let's me buy yarn...how can you NOT love him to death???

If you fake a back ache so you can sit on the couch and knit all day instead of cleaning and doing the laundry...... you may be addicted to knit.

( no comment on where I got that one from... * cough cough* :rollseyes: :twisted: )


If you go to walmart for new curtains and find your hubby pulling you out of the yarn section by the arm and another lady laughing at you ...... you might be addicted to knit.

(um hehehe I went to walmart yesterday...bad idea went for curtains and left with a pound of peaches and cream,lol :eyebrow: )

If you say no to chatting with a room full of firemen.

My ds was taking a cpr class last night . He was about 30 min late getting out and 3 different firemen came to the car to see if I wanted to go inside and sit "we have coffee and water". Like water is going to lure me in. They thought I was crazy when I told them no because I was actually getting time to knit. (Maybe I should knit them some dishclothes or mittens or something {as a thank you} :mrgreen: )

I once taught myself to type with my toes. I've been picking things up with my toes since I was six or so. It means I don't have to bend over. :P

So here's my contribution (on that note): When you set your textbook on the floor and turn the pages with your feet so your hands are free to work on your scarf, you might be addicted to knit.

When your roommate suggested skipping class to go to the LYS and you both get excited and actually do it, you might be addicted to knit (in our defense, it happened to be an optional lecture that day), you might be addicted to knit.

When you've started a .txt file on your desktop with a list of friends' names and whether or not they are allergic to wool, you might be addicted to knit.

You might be addicted to knitting if... you ignore a pinched nerve in your neck because it doesn't interfere with your knitting.... but the moment your thumb starts to cramp preventing you from knitting you seek medical attention. :thinking:

Or you switch to night shift because that means you can knit.

When you take on a costuming project because it means you get to knit some of the pieces... you might be addicted to knitting

When UPS or FedEX shows up and your DH hollers that your yarn is here and you come tearing out of the back room with the current knitting project still cluched in hand and yarn bumping along behind you sending the cat into a tizzy... you might be addicted to knitting

Standing in a discount deptment store with two small kids and hubby with a pen and the checking deposit slips writting down the pattern for a really nice knit/purl aran pattern (with a 42 row repeat) from a machine knit vest, as I tell him "p6, k2, p1, k1, p2, etc, etc".

It took about 10 years before I used that pattern, and amazingly, it made sense. I used it a second time on the scarf I made last month.

:roflhard: :roflhard: OMG!! I'm not quite that bad, but I do that too, and made a point of showing DH a sweater that used the same lace pattern as the scarf I had just knit... :D The 4400 show on USA is the only one I know of...That would be the one! ;) I tried to watch some of the ones I have TiVo'd... and it happened again!! :rofling: This time it was a poncho... :shifty:

Embarressingly addicted is when......

Someone shows you a picture of the newest member of their family
(much worse when it's the real thing) and the first words out of your mouth is,
"What a pretty hand knit. Who made it?" :doh:

Following someone around a public place so you can imprint in your memory the unique cable in their sweater. :shifty:

When you see someone wearing a beautifully, complicated cabled sweater and besides thinking how long it would take to knit something like that. :shock: :thinking: But then thinking of all of you that would be following her around trying to figure out the pattern.....you might be addicted to knitting.

I did this to some poor 20 something young man at church. I wanted to see how his hat was made. Probably scared him out of a year's growth. :roflhard:

You might be addicted to knit if....

You have a nightmare that someone is trying to attack you and you decide to defend yourself with knitting needles (since you obviously have them on-hand).

Your 20 month-old learns a new word while you look at a yarn catalog. Koigu.

Your husband tries to put the moves on you and you respond, "Okay, but do you mind if I knit?" :blush: [I did say this, but it really was just a joke. He laughed, thankfully!]

Ummm...When you go to pick your son up from school...you arrive early (which you always do to get a nice parking and get some knitting in..) and you casually look at the car next to you...(which I *oops* Did I say I??...neway I never do cuz I'm too busy knitting...) and lo' n behold...a fellow knitter :shock: What the?!?!? In that brief 10 sec. moment I notice she's knitting w/ dpns :happydance: My fav! And is also using self striping yarn...also noticed she was knitting english method. Couldn't tell if she was knitting a sock (which I was..) or...possibly working on a sleeve. Hmm.. :thinking: I thought to myself..("Hmm...I should go tap on her window and tell her how's your project goin'?" "OOo, a fellow knitter..how are you doin'?) :waving:

It was funny cuz the lady parked in the slot to the right :arrow: of me...(whom was parked in reverse as was I...the knitting lady was parked the opposite direction..so I had to turn to my left and look back over my shoulder diagonally..) well..umm the lady to my right who looked to be around my age sat in her car awhile..then got off walked behind my car and crossed in front of the lady knitting next to me...She must've thought..."What's the deal with all the knitting?" :XX: LOL!! :roflhard:

It was cool cuz since I've been knitting (dec. 05) I haven't seen ANYONE :| knitting in public...and GEEZ in such close proximity! :cheering:

I told my son when he got in the car and we were on the way home. He was like that's so n' so's grandma. I'm like, "ohhhhh...." I went on to tell him the whole story...LOL :blush:

You're addicted to knitting when ...

your son wakes up unwell and you think 'yey, he can't go to school ... means I can't go to work.... means knitting time !!!!'

:oops:
