-You schedule you classes to find ones easy enough to knit through instead of taking notes

-->You have to file your nails down shorter because the thimble won't fit on your finger otherwise.

I kind of have this problem. I didn't get my nails done for Homecoming b/c it would interfere w/ my crocheting. I want to get them done b/c they looks so cute but I like crocheting better.  Wink

Also, last weekend I was at K*Mart w/ my mom and I saw some really cute kitchen towels (they weren't towel material, just cotton) and I said how cute I thought they were. My mom says, "What are you thinking of making with them?" I didn't get them, but I wish I would have, they would have made super cute totes.  Tongue

ooo this is prob the worst - you start looking for a four bedroom apartment for three people, b/c we are all addictied to crafting..... cause really 550 a month for a bedroom and 1/3 of a craft room is pretty slick.

No, no, my friend, even worse is when the last 3 times you moved your flatmates/ boyfriend automatically looked for places with an extra room for your studio without you saying anything.....

AND you are notorious among people you've never even met for bin diving for anything in public and private places.  I once found the top of a foozeball table on a pile of rubbish in the street in the middle of the night!  I got that baby home, even though I was in a van full of work people coming home from a 12 hour shoot and I got chased by a dog.

-you constantly see freaked out/confused faces from strangers because you accidently asked how they made what their wearing, not where they bought it

^ i love this thread.

people mistake you as "punk rock" because you have at least nine safety pins on you at all time from a sewing project. Cheesy

*when you're shopping and you see things OTHER craftsters would love. This is even worse when I'm temped to buy it for them...

you're crocheting in class, you drop the ball of yarn, it goes rolling across the classroom. You, unaware that class is going on, get up, walk over, and calmly pick up the ball of yarn and continue crocheting.

If it wasn't that my teacher was one of those people who collects crocheted-old-lady-objects... who knows if I would be allowed to touch a hook today.

Hand-dyed and recycled yarn, hand knits, and more!

when you spend more money on "craft crap" than basically anything else, and try to figure out how you can go thrift shopping and still pay your car insurance.

Which is exactly how I work out what to do with my little retail paycheck.

Also, when you're knitting with dpns in the ten minutes before class, and your non-knitting classmates are confused as anything because they only connect knitting with straight needles (I know I did before I started knitting).

And when you're looking at the Learn to Knit kit on the Goodwill shelf, you're not thinking, "Do I want to knit that grey and hot pink scarf?"  Instead, you're thinking, "Does it save me money to buy that kit for the yarn and needles?"

...the toaster over you tried to sneak in was for clay, not food.

I know exactly what you mean about the toaster oven... I'm living in Taiwan right now, where most homes do not have ovens, so I was suffering for my first two months here without a means to bake my clay. I bought a large toaster oven just for that purpose, and in the three months since I bought it, I have - outside of my clay goods - baked a total of one pan of tater tots in it. My roommate thinks I'm crazy. I think I'm just committed to my crafts. Smiley

When you get a new magazine in the mail like teen vogue and you open it and instead of looking at the articles you're looking at the pictures and thinking 'that would look good in a collage' 'oooh that picture would be perfect for my notebook cover'

When you choose to buy some miscellaneous crafty things instead of the new shirt you've been wanting for a long time and it's finally on sale
