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.
