1) The day doesn't feel quite complete if you haven't knit at least one row of something.
2) Get really, really excited when you see a cute pattern and cast it on seconds after seeing it.
3) When you have 15 minutes to kill before meeting friends for dinner, you walk into the local REI not to check out camping or outdoors equipment, but to peruse the hat section for ideas.
Yup. That's what I did last night. I was about 15 min early for dinner with friends last night and so I honestly walked into the REI and picked up hat after hat, looking to see if I could replicate it. Yup. That's what I did. If I'd had paper with me I would have written down notes! That's how much of a geek I am!
You may see the results of said fact finding mission at some point in the future.
