Addiction

I received the following in an email today. I refuse to admit how many I can relate to. :)

YOU KNOW YOU ARE ADDICTED TO KNITTING AND YARN IF . . . . .

  • You have a room in your house devoted just to knitting.
  • You buy yarn just because it's pretty, even if you don't know what you'll do with it.
  • You have been to at least one trade show (convention) or knitting camp.
  • You have traveled across state lines to increase your stash.
  • You have spent over $100 on knitting (yarn/patterns/books) in one day.
  • You have spent over $400 at a knitting trade show (convention/camp) market in one day.
  • You have lied to hide the fact that you have bought more yarn.
  • You have put the name of a grocery store in your check register for the check that was for yarn.
  • You try to beat your husband (or significant other) to the mailbox (so you get to the yarn deliveries first).
  • Most of your friends are knitters.
  • You have called in sick to stay home from work to knit.
  • You have called in sick to go on a knitter's field trip.
  • You stay up at night to knit, even if it means you only get a few hours of sleep.
  • The employees at the local yarn shop know you by name and have memorized you credit card number.
  • You find it hard to sleep because of your UFOs or new ideas whirling around in your brain.
  • You get up in the middle of the night to work on projects.
  • You get up in the middle of the night to read online knit list messages.
  • In your dreams, you are knitting.
  • You have more than two knitting totes.
  • You have an email address that reflects the fact that you are a knitter.
  • You have a personalized license plate that reflects the fact that you are a knitter.
  • You have some kind of knitting accessory(ies) in every room in the house.
  • You are the only one in your family who knows what a yarn bra is.
  • You can recite the names of more knitwear designers than past presidents.
  • You knit and read at the same time. If you are unable to do this because of a complex pattern, you will forego the reading.
  • You have used knitting and the acquisition of yarn as the theme for a vacation. Here's an idea - let's look for all of the yarn mills in (Prince Edward Island, British Columbia/ Virginia/Wisconsin/etc. - place your destination here) for this year's vacation!
  • You joined a knitting Web ring and keep a knitting blog.
