Problem

I think it's time to admit it to myself. I have a yarn problem. I noticed yesterday while at a swanky mall with Hubs. I noticed a woman wearing a garter stitch scarf by a make-up counter and had the following exchange with Hubs.

Me: Is it bad that I know what yarn was used to make that lady's scarf?
Hubs: laughs
Me: It's Lorna's Laces, Shepherd Worsted in the Aslan colorway.
Hubs: abruptly stops laughing

That incident occurred within weeks of my blundering attempt at complimenting a stranger's Lady Eleanor wrap. Immediately found out that she wasn't the knitter and had no idea what I was talking about, so I blathered on a bit to explain that it's a popular knitting pattern.

*sigh* There really needs to be an easier way to easily identify fellow fiber folk. :)

I would be reluctant to call it a problem and would use the term education myself.
