...some of the first words out of your mouth when anyone asks you a question are "let me finish this row" or "just a second, let me finish this part of the pattern."

... you've called into work "sick" just to stay home and knit.

I just started my new job and my brain has been mush lately. I miss you guys, I haven't had a chance to sign on all week during the day and when I'm at home, I can't wait to get my knitting out and allow my brain to gel once again.

Life is like knitting sometimes it's smooth, sometimes it's bumpy and sometimes it's the ultimate frustration.

...when the first thing that crosses your mind when you get sent on a business trip to some exciting location (London in my case) is, "Hmm, I wonder what kinds of yarn they have available there, and where is the nearest shop?"

O.K., I did sightsee, too....

...every anecdote that comes out of your mouth references some WIP, LYS or fibers.

...your coworker greet you in the morning with "Did you knit that sweater?" instead of "Good Morning."

...you use knitting needles to keep your hair out of your eyes, or is that to have them handy when you need them?!?!

You start to wonder if maybe you can find a use for all that cat fur you sweep from under the fridge.

... while emptying the lint trap from the dryer you think "there must be some way to comb this and spin it into yarn."

... your hands are tired and cramped from knitting several hours on small needles, and you continue to do so with the thought that you're "working out the soreness."

... you realize that someone's been talking to you for the past 5 minutes but you didn't hear a word because you were counting stitches.

... your cats have been trained to avoid long stringy things through the aid of super-soakers.

Oh, poor kitty! LOL Nancy, I am ready for the next one to move out. Our second son moved out, and the oldest moved into his room, and left the tiny room empty. Oldest had returned home after some time away, so he had to take the little room. Now I am waiting for him to get his own place again, so I am planning to take out the wall between the two rooms to make one room, a nice roomy sewing/craft/yarn room, with lots of storage, hidden, so it can be a guest room, too.

... you don't care when the cats scratch the couch so long as they don't touch your mohair.

... you've considered keeping the dog fur from his brush in case you ever take up spinning.

... when your friends mention spinning class at the gym, you think they've started a craft circle.

... your kids' friends come to visit and ask you what you're working on today.

... you go to a baby shower and snicker at the baby blankets others have bought knowing your gift contains a hand made layette set.

... you start to bug your friends about getting pregnant so you can knit more baby items.

You finally sew the pieces together and they match up and the sweater fits.

--when the cat finally learns to snuggle beside you in the chair and go to sleep without touching the item you are knitting;

--per the posts about pet fur and dryer lint as raw materials, I did see on the t.v. a bit about a woman who knitted herself an outfit out of her own hair--that that woman is a knitter!!!

Hi, Yarncollector: Don't worry about the double message--I think we have all done it. I know I did it at least three times, if not more. I decided a long time ago that when I keep repeating a mistake I never count past three. Beverley
