When your DH tells you to just buy the pc game you've been lusting over/failing at downloading (yea, I'm naughty), and your first thought is "But I'd rather spend 50 euro on yarn and needles"

Edit: Another one..
Your chat buddies on MSN/YM know that you take longer to reply to them because you're knitting
(sometimes having a voice call is just so much easier)

Funny thing is that if I were single that would totally work on me! I can't go anywhere anymore without wondering what kind of stitch pattern the people around me are wearing.

I know what you mean. In a meeting at work, my boss had on this sweater with a really cool pattern - so I whiled away the time doodling and writing down how I could knit that sweater pattern.

And it worked - did the same exact sweater for DH!

OMG! Hubby and I are huge Ohio State fans!! 2006 season every game I knitted during - we won! Husband insists I knit during every game! Too bad the knitting mojo didn't work for 2006 or 2007 National Championship Games though. Oh well, at least I did my part!!

Your husband is an ANGEL! Mine would never consider giving up "his spot" for some silly string!

...when you bring your knitting to class and leave your book at home (I did this today--had to call hubby to bring it to me before class).

...when you FINALLY get into Ravelry and spend 2 days NOT knitting, but simply organizing your knitting stuff online and looking up cool patterns for your 3 skeins of Tapestry or random skein of novelty slub yarn.

...when your Ravelry queue grows to over 30 items within 24 hours of joining.

Edit: ...when your DH, who normally hates leaving the house for any reason, asks to take you out to dinner just so he can get some time with you without needles getting in the way.

Getting mad because eating, sleeping, and other things use the time you could be knitting.

Looking on the internet at 2am looking for a pattern that you just have to make. (this one looks and acts like me)

When your child's first word is knit. (DH not very happy about it either).
lol!

When everything your 3 yo daughter wants, she asks you to "yarn" for her.

Carey that is cute!!!

When you are watching Sesame Street with your 2 yo and you see sheep puppets and you think about what kind of wool you would get from them.

When you are looking into getting alpacas because the yarn is so expensive and you want to knit with it more.
