You might be a knitting/crocheting addict if …
… and you say: “Just a minute. I’m almost done with the row.”
… and you grab a project so you can knit/crochet in between contractions. (Note: This is generally done only by knitters on the first birth event!)
… which explains both why your shins have bruises (from walking into fire hydrants) and how you broke your nose on a shop door.
You buy buttons, clasps and shawl pins and
… then design projects to show them off.
… then your knitting/crocheting on the nightstand catches your eye and you reach for it instead of your sweetie.
No one in your family believes your protests that
… you can safely knit when stuck in traffic.
On a family cross-country trip
… you regularly Google or Yelp fiber stores to visit
in the towns along the way.
… makes room in your pack for yarn & hook/needles by leaving the chocolate behind.
Spotting any knitter or crocheter as you walk nearby,
… you stop and chat about knitting and crocheting.
At a theater, after the lights go out and the movie starts playing, you reach into your tote and
… and pull out a partially completed project and start knitting.
When you hear about celebrities knitting,
… you are not impressed! You just knit
with knitting stars at Stitches East or
… you find a twig of the appropriate size and spend the next hour trimming and smoothing it to use.
Preparing for a trip to another continent (or even another city),
… you pack two projects and a complete set of needles or hooks “just in case.”
… and realize you don’t remember
ever buying it.
You have two sets of pots and wooden spoons in the kitchen:
… one for food preparation and the other for dying yarns.
You not only downloaded Melanie Gall’s CD Knitting All the Day,
… learned the words so you can sing along!
… you disclose that you’d like to meet
someone who knits.
