you might be a knitter if...
you go to colorado and, after coming out of a thrift store, realize you've just blown half your vacation money on needles.

I don't consider that "bad" .. you bought it at the thrift store for cryin out loud~ how frugal can ya get???

You might be a knitter if : you go into your local yarn store and pay for your purchase and the clerk says "I don't need ID for your credit card. I recognize you b/c you come in here all the time."
OR:
You carry a sack full of newly purchased yarn from Store A into yarn Store B (closed and tied shut) and noone asks to see or hold your bag while you are shopping in their yarn section~

You might be a knitter if:

You are willing to pay extra for priority shipping for all that yarn that you saved so much money on by shopping online just cause there's no way you can wait all that time for standard shipping.

Ok, maybe that's just me

You might be a knitter if you start eyeing twine, rope, string, and thread and wondering how they knit up.

I qualify, then, sort of. On our trip to Pagosa Springs (CO) last summer, the first place I wanted to hit in the touristy town was the thrift shop. I came up short on knitting paraphanalia, but I did enter a little stitchery shop, which looked like all cross-stitch from the signs, but was delighted to find a small, but delightful section of yarn.

So, in my case, you might be a knitter if you blow vacation spending money on single skeins of yarn that you have no intended specific use for in a craft shop.

I came home with a lovely skein of Southwest Trading Company's Bamboo, and a skein of Lorna's Laces Glory. They're delicious, and they're still sitting in my stash. I did buy something else there, but can't remember what it was. Whatever it was, I guess I must have knit something with it, since it's no longer around.

You're constantly inching your way closer to people with knitwear on, wondering a) if they knit it and b) how the stitch was done...

OR...

Same situation as above but you look at it and think to yourself "I could knit that!" and you know what weight of yarn was used, etc.

I was knitting a HUGE blanket for DH in Caron SS (since it was going to the ship, it had to be able to take a beating). I had to go into Michael's a few times over the course of a month to buy more yarn. The last time I went in the cashier said "You must really like this color" and she even remembered my zip code. I honestly didn't even realize I'd gone through her line before.
