How do YOU know that you're a junkie?
Or you pass up the dye job because you'd rather spend the money on yarn! Heck, I've been passing up the hair cut for the last 2 months because I'd rather by yarn!
Great question!

I can relate...My son and ddinlaw just bought a house in the Boston area and I found the LYS near their new home (which will be 1 and 1/2 hours from me!)

You've got a huge stash and you've decided you don't need to buy yarn for at least a month . . . and after swearing to keep this promise you break it -- four times in less than a week.

You know you are a junkie when you got out to dinner with your beautiful wife and you take your knitting because she may have to go to the bathroom and you could knit a row or two before she gets back.

When the world fades away and all you can see are the knitting needles and the yarn in your hands. I even forget to eat and my sons get after me because they are hungry and they know I will knit instead of eating.

I was in the dentist last week and he was doing some particularly evil thing to my teeth that hurt like you wouldn't believe and I thought to myself of all the yarn that would be my reward "tilli thomas, silk, wool, mohair, bamboo....."

My dog wedges her head between my hand and my needle. Poor baby is getting desperate for a head rub then.
