When you have your yarn delivered to you at work because you cant STAND the thought of it arriving at your house and not having IMMEDIATE access to it...

When your receptionist assumes that EVERY package that comes in your name contains more yarn....

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.

When you're forcing yourself to stay at work instead of running to the LYS and then home to start a new project you've been daydreaming about... *whiteknuckling!!*

You may be addicted to knit if you see things completely unrelated to knitting and instantly envision it worked into a project of some sort.

Sorry, been feeling a bit slow on the uptake lately.
