Do You Have Dreams about Knitting?
I must have stayed up waaayyy too late reading these posts last night (while fixing children's computers) because I dreamed that I was in a restaurant and noticed a lady's beautiful scarf. While I'm watching her, the color changes to a neon green, but I decided that I still loved the pattern even though the color did NOT go with whatever she had on. Sad, ain't it???

Does this mean that I'm officially addicted???

The other night, I dreamed that I'd figured out some revolutionary knitting technique. (Seeing as how it involved picking up stitches smack dab in the middle of a piece of knitted fabric, I can't see why I thought that, but oh well...)

Knitting does often appear in my dreams - as do yarn stores!

Yes!
I used tohave more knitting dreams when I was first learning to knit. Probably because I was focussed on learning the process. Once I was working with a slip sstitch pattern, which at the time took a lot of concentration. I dreamed about fish and when they turned I could see that instead of scales they had the slip stitch pattern on their sides.

I had one the other night. I had been working on my shawl all day, so when I went to bed I had a dream that I finished the whole thing and it was beautiful! I woke with a smile on my face and a ?huh? where's the darn shawl???

I had a knitting dream around the holidays last year. I dreamt I had to get scarved knitted for all of our family members, and ASAP!

My husband woke me up saying, "Stop, ok?!" and pulling a blanket away from me. When I looked down, I had the top edge of the blanket in my hands and had twisted it all the way down to my feet. Apparently I'd make knitting movements with my fingers along the top of the blanket, turn it... rinse and repeat. I'd done it to our top blanket, and was starting on our sheet when he woke me.

Dude, that's hillarious

no, I have never had a dream about knitting. I wish I could have one, they sound like so much fun!
