You know you're addicted to knitting when...
I got this email from my guild today, thought it was cute! :D


You have a room in your house devoted just to knitting.

You buy yarn just because it's pretty, even if you don't know what
you'll do with it.

You have been to at least one trade show (convention) or knitting camp.

You have traveled across state lines to increase your stash.

You have spent over $100 on knitting (yarn/patterns/books) in one day.

You have spent over $400 at a knitting trade show (convention/camp)
market in one day.

You have lied to hide the fact that you have bought more yarn.

You have put the name of a grocery store in your check register for the
check that was for yarn.

You try to beat your husband (or significant other) to the mailbox (so
you get to the yarn deliveries first).

Most of your friends are knitters.

You have called in sick to stay home from work to knit.

You have called in sick to go on a knitter's field trip.

You stay up at night to knit, even if it means you only get a few hours
of sleep.

The employees at the local yarn shop know you by name and have
memorized you credit card number.

You find it hard to sleep because of your UFOs (unfinished objects) or
new ideas whirling around in your brain.

You get up in the middle of the night to work on projects.

You get up in the middle of the night to read online knit list

In your dreams, you are knitting.

You have more than two knitting totes.

You have an email address that reflects the fact that you are a

You have a personalized license plate that reflects the fact that you
are a knitter.

You have some kind of knitting accessory(ies) in every room in the

You are the only one in your family who knows what a yarn bra is.

You can recite the names of more knitwear designers than past

You knit and read at the same time. If you are unable to do this
because of a complex pattern, you will forego the reading.

You have used knitting and the acquisition of yarn as the theme for a
vacation. Here's an idea - let's look for all of the yarn mills in
(Prince Edward Island, British Columbia/ Virginia/Wisconsin/etc. - place
your destination here) for this year's vacation!

You joined a knitting Web ring and keep a knitting blog. ---

Have you been reading my mind? :rofling:
"Trust the pattern!"

Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
