How to Determine If You’re a Crochet Addict

Unfortunately, I can't take the credit for coming up with any of these. I found these today on the Crochet Spot.

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.
