Let me give you an example:
Me and Mr Knitwit shopping in Hobbycraft/wool shop
Me - Oh that's a nice colour!
Mr Knitwit - uh
Me - I could make (insert knitted garment here)
Mr Knitwit - uh
Me - and it's half price, I think I might get it.....
Mr Knitwit - Don't you have enough wool? It's all over the house! That it no more wool until you've used some of what you've already got! You think I don't know about the five balls stashed in the bread bin?
(Incidentally we don't use our bread bin for bread, no idea why I just don't like them , so the bread bin has become a hidey hole)
Yes Mr Knitwit is very against me expanding my stash of wool/fabric until...... New Scene
Mr Knitwit Nans House
Nan - oh Frankie would you like this wool, im having a clear out and I wont use this one
Me - (whilst grinning from ear to ear) Oh yes please if your getting rid of it!
Mr Knitwit - oh isn't that a nice colour, you'll be able to make (Insert knitted item here)
Double standards! However I think I've found away around it! Im going to turn Mr Knitwits Nan into a wool mule (it's kinda like a drugs mule but a lot less risky if your going through customs!) If I
But here's what she gave me this time! (There was no smuggling involved with this wool!)

I usually tend to stay away from this type of wool because I can get my hair off with it a bit but this is lovely to work with!
I'm knitting it up on size 1 needles (unsure of whether they are American or English size) and I think its going to become a nice draped shawl/scarf thing. Can you tell I'm wining it? Anyway its my favourite type of knitting. Knitting for the sake of knitting!
How much do you smuggle into your house?
