How to Determine If You’re a Crochet AddictBy Rachel Choi – 38 Comments
Addictions have a reputation for being bad. Well, if it’s drugs or something like that, maybe it is. But who ever said that being addicted to crochet is a bad thing? I certainly don’t thing so. But if you do, we can make a “Crochet Addicts Anonymous” group just for you. To determine if you are a crochet addict, simply read the symptoms below.
Symptoms of a Crochet Addict
- You’re proud to be called a “hooker”.
- You have a room for your yarn, not a shelf or a draw, you have an entire room.
- When someone greets you they start off by say, “What are you knitting?”
- You have more crochet hooks and patterns than you can count or will ever use.
- You have a designated crochet bag that you carry projects in, and the bag isn’t small.
- You always keep a crochet project in your car or at work, just in case you have some down time.
- Your hands get fidgety when you go a day without crocheting (as if you would ever do that).
- You have a play list of music or movies that’s called, “Play While Crocheting”.
- You memorized when the major yarn stores have discounts and coupons.
- You crochet with things other than yarn, such as plastic bags, cassette tape, duck tape, t-shirts, etc.
- You’ve learned to die yarn with Kool-aid and spin yarn out of your pet’s hair.
- You wear one of those necklace medallions that cuts your yarn for you.
- Your number of WIPs (works in progress) and UFOs (unfinished objects) keeps multiplying, and you blame it on your cat/dog/spouse.
- You are crocheting while reading this post.
