• You put your computer keyboard on the floor while reading your daily e-mails so you can hit the space bar with your toe to scroll through them while knitting.

• Your friends and family know that you will always accept yarn sight unseen. Garage-sale yarn, yarn from cleaned-out basements, other knitters’ castoffs, any yarn at all. (All you ask is that they leave it in a plain brown paper bag at the door, because you like to pretend you have a reputation to protect.)
• You seek out forms of exercise that you can do while knitting, such as riding a stationary bike.
• You will check out a book from the library just because you heard that one of the characters knits.
