Shit Knitters Say

In case you've been living under a rock, there is an explosion of videos titled "Shit ______ Say" all over the interweb. We knitters have one too! 

The folks at WEBS (besides having America's largest yarn store) are sooo badass for making this.

I thought it was clever and mostly accurate, but I think they missed some things:
  • Have you seen the newest Knitty? ZOMG I want to make all the things!
  • Ugh, the new Knitty has some crappy patterns... who approved these patterns?
  • I spend so much time on Ravelry I never get enough knitting done!
  • *browses Ravelry forums for five hours* All this fighting. Tsk tsk. These people need to STFU and knit more.
  • Ravelry is better than Facebook.
  • Ravelry isn't anything LIKE Facebook! How dare you say such a thing??!??
  • I follow 208458966 different knitting blogs! They are all so innovative!
  • *after looking at 25 or so knitting blogs* No one makes anything original anymore...
  • Malabrigo/Madelinetosh/[insert fave yarn brand here] has a new yarn line out! I am so gonna buy some.
  • Wollmeise is going up for sale online at 3am! I know I have to be up for work/school, but I'll die if I don't get a skein, even if it's in a shitty color I know I won't like and will never use.
  • What? That yarn is $65 a skein...??!?? Is it made from the fine ass hairs of a yak or what?
  • 100% Cashmere for $65 a skein?? What a bargain!
  • I think I might not eat lunch for a few days. I need that yarn in my stash so I can not use it for two years.
  • I am waiting for a sale at [insert fave yarn shop here] before I buy anymore yarn.
  • OK, so I totally just bought $100 worth of yarn online... there was a free shipping promotion! :D
  • I went on Knit Picks to get one skein of $10 sock yarn... I end up with $56 worth of stuff. It's a conspiracy, I tell ya.
  • *looks at stash* I don't even know what the fuck I have anymore.
  • *looks at stash* I think I should destash some of this....but I might need it one day!
  • *looks at stash* I think I can squeeze a few more skeins in here after all! :D
  • *looks at stash* I think I need a new apartment/house/storage unit.
  • Lace knitting? Oh fuck no, that shit looks hard.
  • Did you see the new Vogue Knitting? That lace shawl featured is so gorgeous, I am totally gonna make it.
  • What? You BOUGHT that hat?!??? I could have totally made that. In a better color and better yarn.
  • Why do you non knitters keep bugging me to make you shit?? Go away.
  • Can I use you as a model for my FO?
  • Um, no, this is for me.  I'll make you one for *mumbles*....
  • *gets acrylic yarn as a gift from a non knitter* Gee, thanks for the yarn....>___>
  • Acrylic yarn? Charity knitting!
  • *adds 38475 things to Ravelry queue on 1/1* I am so gonna make all of these this year!
  • (On 12/30) I only made 3 things this year *hangs head*
  • I am gonna make a sweater this year!
  • That sweater I was making? I put it down weeks ago... I got bored of it and made some socks instead.
  • Socks are so portable and easy. Sock knitting rocks!
  • *attempts to make socks and fails miserably* Sock knitting sucks balls -__-
That's all I got for now XD


  1. Me thinks you should make a follow up video because your list is hilarious and true!

    "I don't even know what I have anymore"!


Thanks for the love <3
