As a knitter, there are things that might seem bizarre to the “oustide world” but are totally OK to the knitting world. For example:
It is perfectly acceptable to paint one’s living room a color to match the Spud and Chloe afghan that your mother made you.
It is perfectly acceptable to take a sweater out of the box to wear for the first time and find a stitch marker still in it.
It is perfectly acceptable to want to knit your Italian Greyhound a giraffe sweater so that he looks like the tiny giraffe in those Direct TV commercials.
