Am I Addicted to Knitting?
I love to knit in the car when hubby's driving. Last night we had to drop off one of our cars at a garage, so I had to follow him there. I must be addicted because I was unhappy at having to be IN the car and not knitting I actually wondered if there was a way I could do both

I think I'm officially ADDICTED!

When we have to drive for a long period (over 1/2 an hour) I have the DH drive so I can knit. He just knows he has to drive now! I also knit in the movie theatre because I am just sitting there afterall!

It is a FABULOUS thing to be addicted to!!!

I don't knit in the car any more because I do all the driving but yah I think you probably are. Here are some simple questions to determine knitting addiction.

Do you knit when ever possible?
Do you think about knitting more than 50 times a day?
When you see an attractive man or woman do you find yourself looking at their sweater instead of them trying to figure out the pattern and fiber?
Do you have 1 or more knitting dreams in a night?
Are you willing to give up cooking, cleaning, eating and sleeping if it means more time for knitting?
When you go on vacation do you book your hotel by it's location to the LYS?
Do you dream of rolling naked in your favorite yarn?
Do you order from KP at least twice a month?
Do you find yourself sneaking out to the LYS and then hiding your purchase?

If you've answered yes to 2 or more of these questions then you probably are addicted.

I'm sure there are other ways of telling addiction but these are the ones that have happened to me.

If you are, so am I! It has gotten to the point that if I am standing in line, I'm ticked off because I'm not knitting. And if I have my knitting with me and it's a long line (and I don't have a shopping cart or luggage to tend to), I DO knit in line!

Good idea! I wonder where ELSE I could be knitting that I haven't thought of? In the bathtub? Maybe. LOL!

Between my iPod (I listen to that any time I am not at home or even AT home) and my knitting it's like total sensory deprivation......I don't have to see or talk to anyone else.

Oh, and here's an interesting article. If you just swap out "internet" for "knitting"...

One more thing..........You might be addicted to knitting if...........you make sure your email account downloads your forum posting alerts BEFORE your husband's messages.
