When you've stopped buying jumpers (or sweaters) because you say, "I can do that", and you have the stash at home.

When you're passing by a shop window and not really looking at the jumper as a jumper, but as a stitch construction. YOu're also able to 'read' how they got the pattern that way. True story.

Oh yeah.  I totally do that all the time.  I go up to the clothes racks in departments stores, and start turning the sweaters inside out and what have you...  Cheesy  I've also almost walked up to total strangers and asked if I could examine the sweater they're wearing so I can decipher the stitch pattern.  I have walked really really closely behind people, doing that...

You know you've been knitting too much when the sound of your own needles gets on your nerves!

This happened to me recently while knitting the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch n Bitch. I knit the majority of it in only 2 days, and by the end I couldn't stand the sounds of my needles. Next time I'm going to take a little more time. Smiley

Have you had any "I've been knitting too much" moments?!

When you see this seed jar on display at the museum and your first thought is "what a cool knitting pattern!"

You know when you've been knitting too much when you start knitting in your sleep. Sleep knitting has ruined so many of my WIP's. Ha

You know your'e knitting too much when you go to the movie theater and realize in about 10 minutes that you're bored because you're not knitting.

...and when you get annoyed because life keeps getting in the way of your knitting. ("But professor, I can't meet the deadline for my research project because I just learned how to do fair isle knitting properly!")

...when you develop a nasty case of tendonitis and curse the brace b/c you can't hold your needles comfortably.

When your dogs whimper when you take the knitting out of your bag.

haha!  "life keeps getting in the way of knitting"  thats so true for me...

You know you've been knitting too much when everytime you see anything knit you have to stop and examine it and evaluate whether your skills are up to making something similar (or better!) and it immediately gives you the urge to visit your LYS to find the appropriate yarn!

Also when cashiers start asking "Do you USE all this yarn???"

You have calluses on your fingers where you hold your needles and yarn. It totally grosses my friend jeff out.

You know you've been knitting too much (?) when your boyfriend looks at you with sad eyes and says " I wish I was a ball of yarn so you would give me some attention".

True story.

Mistakes done in life and in mohair can't be ripped.
