what is wrong with me?!
I'm out running errands today. One of the mart type stores has rearranged everything, "for the customer" and I found a yarn aisle. Hmmmmmmmmmm, I didn't even know they carried yarn. After looking at it I was under impressed but across the aisle they had notions. I sneak a quick look. There is a Susan Bates "sock set-5 of each size 1.5,1.75.2.0, and 2.25." I throw it in the cart because, "that would be nice to keep in the car in case of emergencies." I mean stranded somewhere with no needles just can't happen can it? Next I'll store a bit of sock yarn in a paper bag somewhere in the car too so I'll never be stuck not knitting. I'm blaming this on PMS.

I am not entirely understanding why you think something might be wrong with you. You sound perfectly fine to me. *shrug*

Yeah, what's the problem!? Sounds like a great plan to me

Or, is it that you had not seen these things in the store before?

Hmm... I'm confused. :thinking: I don't see the dilemma here either... ???

*walks off pondering to herself that maybe everybody does NOT keep knitting in the car just in case and perhaps I am the strange one*

Yeah, what is WRONG with you for not having needles and yarn in your car in the FIRST place? Huh? :rofling:

You mean this is normal knitter behavior? Whew, I was afraid I had gone over the edge. I have more yarn, patterns, pattern books and needles than I ever thought I'd own and now this emergency knitting stuff....Okay, what's next on the behavioral horizon?
