you go to Macy's and see a knitted cabled scarf, then sit there counting the stitches and rows to see how it compares to a pattern you've already got.... (extra column of cables, 3 knit stitches between the p2's seperating the columns of cables instead of k2, and about 2 inches of k3p1 at either end)
nada. taking a break.

You know you're a knitter when...
... you wish there was a way to count rows or stitches with your toes so you didn't have to put down your knitting to pick up a pen.

When your children introduce you as,

"And this is my mom Roburda, she's a knitda."

You know your knitting brings you stress relief when you are about to head out in the car for a two hour drive and your DH asks you to please grab a 'garbage knit project' to knit so that you will not comment so much on his driving.

When you point out that means you'll have two sharp pointy sticks to jab him with, you know he's desperate when he asks you to grab it anyways.

Then you'll know your a quick knitter when you knit up an 8 inch by 16 inch swatch in garter in two hours. Then your kids fight over which one gets the 'blanket' for their stuffed toy. And your husband moans because there is no yarn left for the drive home.

[garbage project: knit of nasty acrylic gifted to you by well meaning relatives. Point of project... to help you get in the car with husband who has had 3 accidents since January but still insists on driving on the 6 lane highway... tension??? what tension??? gauge???? tight!!!!!]

Thought of one I did about a week ago.

I walked up to a lady wearing a beautiful sweater and asked her if it was hand knitted. When she said no, apparently I gave her a very mean look, because she walked away from me very quickly.

I have never knitted a sweater before, but I have a feeling once I start, I will probably not buy the ones from the store anymore.

you know you're a knitter when...

you're sitting in study hall, studying for a big test and cursing under your breath thinking you could be working on your uncle's christmas present.

you take your WIP to your friends house for a movie party and you end up missing most the movie 'cause you're so into your knitting.

you annoy your friends by pinching their shirt and going "i could've made this for you and saved you thirty bucks"

I'm just about to walk out the door on a weekend mini vacation, and this pops into my head:

You know you're a knitter when . . . You're going away for the weekend and you take two bags of knitting stuff and only one bag of clothes.

ETA: Luckily, I'll have internet access where I'm going so I can still get my KH fix!

LOL I was watching the remake of "The Wickerman" last night and there was a scene where the doctor was wearing a cardigan. I kept thinking, ooooh a cardi with a seed stitch collar. Nifty. Maybe I'll knit one.
