Knowing How to Knit vs. Being A Knitter

It is funny how when you meet someone who knits you can quickly and easily place them into one of two categories:

   1.) A person who know how to/can knit
   2.) A Knitter

Someone who knows how to knit will ask you what you are making and tell you a story about how their grandmother or mother or aunt used to knit for the family when he/she was a child. They will usually tell you the treasured handmade item that they still have from that person as well. Lastly, they are super excited to tell you that they know how to knit.

A Knitter - notice the capital K - is VERY different. A Knitter is rarely seen without one of their own handmade pieces. A Knitter has a stash that has displaced a family member or friend in their home. When someone becomes a Knitter the identity becomes very overwhelming.
