you walk into a room empty-handed and everyone asks "Where's your knitting?" (not that that's ever happened to me, you understand.)

...when the LYSO calls you at your work and leaves you voice mail when new yarns come in.

...when you have a child move out you remove the bed and fill the room with yarn!

...when you plan a camping trip and the first ten items on your check list are knitting related.
...when you arrive on the campground and you realize you forgot pretty much everything but your knitting.
...when you have to have a designated campground knitting project, such as socks (easy to take a long).
...when you don't care about the great sunset and the campfire etc. because you're too busy knitting.
...when your husband and daugther have to share a cabinet because you need extra space for yarn.
...when you are in need of a second set of size 2 dpn's and you find them in a drawer in the camper, where you put them a long time ago just in case you ever needed them.
...when you suggest to buy a bigger camper because your designated campground knitting basket doesn't fit on the shelves.
...when you make your husband put down a carpet in front of the camper so your yarn doesn't get dirty if it drops on the ground.
...when your daugther asks you what kind of toys you packed for her to take on the trip and all you can offer is skeins of yarn.
...when you go on a camping trip and you want to go home the next day (gorgeous weather) because you ran out of yarn.


Happy Knitting,
DREA

You know you're a knitter when it's more important to pack your yarn than your lunch, or the knitting tool kit and extra yarn are the first things into your suitcase.

You don't mind how long the light stays red, because I can knit more! When you turn off the motor at the bank drive-through and peacefully wait your turn because you can knit.

..... the first meaning of the word "cable" does not refer to tv reception or rope.

You forget to eat because you have to fix an error in your knitting and none of your friends think this is odd behaviour for you.

How about when your husband must cajole you to have a night out to dinner and a movie because you can't stand the fact that it's too dark inside the theatre to knit? (And my husband works for a company that owns an entire chain of theatres, so it doesn't even cost us anything to go see the movie!) Still, I'd rather be home watching a Cheers rerun for the 80th time and be able to knit, too!!

Or: When you jump at the chance to knit afghans and sweaters to donate to your church's Christmas bazaar because THEY'RE providing the yarn for free!

If you've ever forced several rows of people on an airplane to stand up and help you look for that dropped needle... you know you're a knitter!

You know you are a knitter when the sound of clicking needles in a meeting/class make you smile.

It is truly inexpressible how much I missed you all... hopefull I'll be back on here more regularly soon!

How 'bout you know you're a knitter when you wonder what the girls on KR would say about .... anything?

...You're most difficult decision of the day is which project to work on?

...You get frustrated watching movies that aren't on tape (or DVD) because if you look down at knitting and miss something, you can't rewind and look again (and you certainly aren't going to watch without knitting!!!)

...when you can't get rid of your dinner guests who are still hanging around after midnight - because you taught them to knit and they can't stop! (three guesses why I am so sleepy this morning, and the first two don't count!)

....when after finishing a sock on the vanpool ride to work you tell everybody about having DSSS - dreaded second sock syndrome and they laugh!

.....when a person on your old vanpool says your replacement is nice but doesn't knit!!!

when you have large tote bags around your favorite chair;

when you have to "kitten proof" the house by getting the balls of yarn out of sight;

when you get defensive because people remind you that kittens love to play with balls of yarn;

when you find out that these people were right;

when you have to put the kitten in "kitty time out" for getting into one of the aforementioned tote bags full of balls of yarn.
