OK, admit it, who talks
to yourself while knitting, especially with the more complex patterns.

I'm sure people think I'm completely nuts while I'm sitting there during the kids' swimming lessons. I'm doing it quietly, but they can probably see my lips moving. :rofling:

knit two together....yarn over...slip one...knit two...yarn over...knit one....

Yes, I think out loud to help myself "get it straight". It doesn't really bother me when people notice.

When I have a complicated repeat, I say it out loud, too. The more distractions around there are, the louder I speak!

i think i'm even worse because for a simple rib pattern, i'm saying knit, knit, purl, purl.
it's not like it's even difficult and i'm still mouthing the words.

Guilty as charged! Mostly just when counting stitches or working a complicated pattern, though.

I only count out loud as well. My friends all laugh at me when I get to a complicated row because I tell them "I can't listen to you right now - I need to count" and then they hear me going "1, 2, 3, 4. 1, 2, 3, 4" under my breath. rofl

Oh good, I'm not the only one!

I talk to myself a lot, it drives DH crazy.
