Knitting Forever, Houswork Whenever!

I love fiber-related blurbs like this one!  Here are some more I saw recently.  I added them to my Fiber-Related Messages page.

  • Crocheting:  The obsessive use of hooks and yarn to create an array of fuzzy objects in various states of completion.  See also “yarn lust.”
  • Knitting:  The obsessive use of needles and yarn to create an array of fuzzy objects in various states of completion.  See also “yarn lust.”
  • Veni, vidi, acubus texui.  (I came.  I saw.  I knitted.)

Then I saw this great dialogue.  I am sure many of us have, at one time or another, experienced at least some parts of this!

  • Yes, I am knitting.  No, I am sure I am not crocheting.
  • Yes, sometimes it does require a lot of patience.
  • Yes, you could do it.  Really!  Want to learn?
  • Yes, I know you can buy sweaters, socks, etc. for not much money – but what’s the fun in that?
  • Yes, I am sure your grandmother did knit for you; that’s nice.
  • Well, yes, it does require some concentration – depending on the pattern and the yarn.  So could you please stop talking and let me knit now?

  1. We could have shields made up with those words on them!


  2. I agree … I find it takes more patience to clean a floor … too boring!


  3. Yes, that should be a fiber crafter’s motto!

  5. Until you’re sock knitting and you have four in your hands. That really gets folk every time! 😉

    A Roman victory cry for all knitters, I love it.

    I had someone say “that must take a lot of patience” this weekend. Ironically, for me, it doesn’t, not the knitting, but the designing of the pattern I’m working on. I just nodded absently and knitted on.

    Ha ha, these are great. Particularly love the Latin one, a version of which will become my motto from now on!


  9. Ahhh, once I quote a price, people back down quickly. 🙂


  10. I agree; it seems rather obvious: one needle or two! Maybe they just focus on the yarn!


  11. Yes, that is rather fun! Great news about Weaver … maybe you should take him on trips and post pics of him various places! 🙂

    LOLOL! Love it! My pet peeve is the same as the poster lagrancostanza — I get a bit peevish when people see me knitting then show me a crochet pattern I MUST make for them. 😀


  13. lagrancostanza says:

    Haha, I love these. 😀 (One of my pet peeves is people mixing up crocheting and knitting. There’s a difference, why don’t they see that?!)


  14. LOL! I always take my knitting/crochet on the tram and sometimes I can see someone almost bursting to ask me what am I doing? My koala called Weaver has been astonishingly well received
    and I am hoping to really take the Aussie critters places. 🙂
