“Dear Non-Knitter…”

Does anyone relate to this problem?  Share with us your story 🙂

“Dear non-knitter,

Here are few things that are intended to help you understand us knitters better.

I can knit, talk and listen. The fact that I look you straight in the eyes while I’m knitting, should be an indication that you have all my attention (except while I’m counting). This is called multi-tasking.

Do not change the TV channel if I’m sitting in front of the TV with my knitting needles. I know perfectly what’s going on in the episode though I’m not looking at the TV and know very well who killed whom for that matter. The only time I do not want to talk to you is when you hear; “23, 24, 25, 26 ….” If you can hear me saying some some numbers out loud, it is a clear signal that I’m counting.

If you disturb me in these circumstances, I refuse to take responsibility for my own actions, if you are the cause that I have to recount these 376 stitches. Believe me, it will not be pretty.

Although I curse like a sailor, throw my knitting projects up against the wall, and at times may threaten every one around me, I really enjoy knitting. You can count on it that I sure do love it. I find it fun and incredibly relaxing.

Since we are already on that subject… YES, you can give me more yarn. Don’t assume that even though I have plenty of yarn, that I don’t want more. I have a lot because I love yarn. If you hear me talk about that I have too much yarn, then I’m lying. More yarn is ALWAYS a good gift. If my yarn stash is larger than in the yarn shop, then maybe I will think about it.

Thank you for taking this into consideration. I will probably send you more useful advice later such as “How housekeeping makes you incredibly sexy”.

Ps. You never know, maybe I will have you in mind when choosing my next knitting project. So be nice! 🙂 ”
