What type of Knitter are you?
Based on The Harlot's book, "Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off," what kind of knitter are you?

a process knitter - one who knits fpurely for the love of knitting
a product knitter - one who knits for an end result - the product (this doesn't mean they don't enjoy knitting, it's just not the primary objective)

permanent resident - one who knits constantly (alot) and who's stash is substantial

visitor - one who picks up knitting here and there

I'm such a process knitter.. I'm not concerned about not finishing things. I just love the knitting part. -Not to say that I don't finish objects and wouldn't love to have finished objects.. it's just not as important to me.

I voted product knitter who permanently resides in the land of knitting because I enjoy knitting but I like to knit smaller things so I can have that feeling of accomplishment when I finish something. If I have too many WIP's I start to feel overwhelmed. And since I'm not working at the mo, I have pleeeenty of time to knit (and do housework, but let's face it...)

My stash isn't very big at the moment but it's big enough that if I stopped buying yarn RIGHT NOW (ha!) it would take me at least a couple months to knit away what I have. Mostly because I knit pretty slow, though.

I MUST be a process knitter, I consider frogging the opportunityto get twice as much enjoyment out of yarn, you get to knit with it twice

I'm definitely a process knitter who has to knit every single day or else I just don't feel right. I have a pretty large stash and I don't have plans for all of it, but just try and get me to part with it!

I also have a little bit of product knitter in me because all my life I've had trouble finishing what I start, and now that I'm a knitter it gives me great satisfaction to actually finish my projects. I like to knit stuff to use around the house like dish cloths or my eyeshade which I use every night.

So I'm a bit of both . . . but definitely more process than product.

Definately process, and I definately live in the land of knitting. In fact, if that were an actual place, I would move there. Everyone would take the train or the bus so they could knit, every house would have a "stash room" for only knitting/crocheting type things, DH's would build us all shelves to store our yarn, and yarn would be free. Every store would have it. Go buy milk and yarn at the same time. And you either would have to be a fiber nut or be related to a fiber nut to live there.

If you build it, they will come...
