10 things knitters can’t stand

We’re a unique group, us yarn enthusiasts. Knitters around the world face a unique set of problems that non-knitters just don’t seem to get.

But it’s okay, just know you’re not alone.

1. When someone asks you a question while counting…

Your question might be important but please just let us finish!

2. When the cat somehow gets into your yarn bag…

They are worse than children sometimes…

3. When you’ve spent weeks on a jumper, only to shrink it in the wash…

It makes you want to scream!

4. When a friend wants a “simple” gift for Christmas…

Oh yeah, totally could knit that in my sleep….

5. When you’ve not finished a project, but you’re running out of yarn.

You know the next batch won’t be quite the right colour..

6. When you look at the clock and realise you have to be awake in a few hours.

You’re so rebellious!

7. When you’ve dropped some stitches…

And weighing up how much you care about the project being perfect…

8. When your tension didn’t work exactly as you expected…

Although, baggy clothes are all the rage right now…

9. When knitting needles poke holes in your favourite bags.

Even when you think your new bag is impenetrable.

10. And when you finally take stock of all the yarn you have..

But hey, at least it’s a good time!

Non-knitters just don’t understand… Share your personal favourites in the comments!
