THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO KNITTERS

  1. I could never do that.
    Actually, you probably could if you wanted to.
  2. I want to learn to knit, but I don't have the patience for it.
    You find patience for skills you want to acquire.
  3. Can you knit a ________ for me?
    Nope. I don't know you well enough and I only knit for love. I've tried knitting for strangers and acquaintances before. It made me hate them.
  4. You could sell that and make a lot of money.
    But then I wouldn't have time to knit for myself. And I'm my favorite person to knit for. Also, not many people want to pay the time and material cost for hand-knit items.
  5. My grandma knits.
    That's because your grandma is awesome.
  6. "wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy it?"
    maybe. but knitters don't always knit for a finished product - they knit for the process.

  7. "My aunt/grandma/friend knit me this great afghan."
    I'm sure it's great, but I'd also bet it's crocheted and not knit.

  8. Oh, you're crocheting!
    Um no. There IS a difference.
