In honor of Elizabeth Zimmerman's birthday, which was today, August 9, here are some sure signs you are not a knitter... but A Knitter. (My answers are in italics.)(Thanks Kat! I stole from you -- again)
- You knit while waiting to order at a restaurant. Also while waiting for the meal to arrive and while waiting for others to finish. Check.
- You knit while waiting for the traffic lights to change. Um, check - especially when the kids are there to let me know when the light changes - okay, seriously, I do plain sock feet for that.
- You belong to at least one knitting group. Check.
- You have at least two projects OTN at all times. Check.
- Your have checked out every knitting book in your local library at least once. Check -- well, at least those I don't already own.
- You know where to find the best yarn deals but don’t know where sales are happening for shoes, clothes, or electronics. Check.
- Your stash storage area is bigger than your pantry. It's close. I'll have to measure....
- You view boring meetings, long car trips, and traffic jams as just one more opportunity to knit. Check.
- You are familiar with the phrase Sock yarn doesn't count and may have used it yourself. um... check.
- You can quote Elizabeth Zimmerman and own at least one of her books. Check.
- You have at least one knitting app on your iPhone/iTouch/iPad/Droid. um, no iPhone/iTouch/iPad/Droid. If I DID own such a thing, there would be knitting apps. I carry pictures of all of my yarn on my iPod .... and there is, knitting software on both the desktop and laptop computers. I'm hoping that counts -- after all, this is about KNITTING, not cool electronic toys.
- You have your own knitblog. Check.
- You have more knitblogger friends than real life friends. Hmm... not sure... I'd have to actually count, and I don't want to -- besides some of my knitblog friends are my real friends, and vice versa.
- You can name Stephanie Perl-McPhee's husband and all her children. Check. and other members of her family.
Now, it's not my quiz, but I think I qualify, even without the iFamily of toys.
Additional questions I'd have added:
15. You decide what knitting you'll take on a trip before you decide what clothes you'll take.
16. You never travel without knitting.
(check on both of those).
Tomorrow, an actual blog about how lovely it is to be in Maine away from the ghastly midwestern heat -- with a strong likelihood of beach pictures.
