If I can’t take my yarn, I’m not going: 5 things knitters say
Family and friends all love their knitters, but sometimes we crafters can be hard to please. Here are some things knitters say.
“If I can’t take my yarn, I’m not going.”
“You want me to sit still for hours without taking my knitting? Have you lost your mind?” Here’s the facts: I’m not going anywhere without my knitting. Work, a party, the opera, doesn’t matter – it’s coming with me.
“DON’T TOUCH THAT YOU’LL DROP A STITCH!”
Get away from that yarn, family members and friends. You might pull a stitch off the needle, or snag the yarn, or tangle my Fair Isle, or worse! Get away from that yarn!
“There’s no such thing as too much yarn.”
There’s definitely no such thing as too much yarn. I could be drowning in merino and cashmere, with hanks piled up to the ceiling, and it still wouldn’t be too much.
“No, I’ve had that yarn for ages.”
Nah, that huge pile of yarn next to the ripped open pink packaging by the door has been here forever! It’s definitely not new, no, definitely not.
No, I will not knit you an intricate cabled sweater for $20. No, I will not knit a baby blanket for your co-worker’s roommate’s cousin for free. No, I don’t just have a lot of free time. No.
What kind of things do you say to family and friends – or what do your knitters say to you? Tell me in the comments!
