How to become a Knitter with a Capital "K"

1. Given a gift of a knitted project (that was intended as a gift from the beginning, bestowing of mistakes does not count)
2. Completed a pair of socks
3. Finished a project that includes cabling or lace
4. Have had multiple projects on needles at the same time
5. Have had a picture of a project on the internet or in a publication (this includes your blog or Ravelry)
6. Know what k2tog and ssk are, and have a favorite that you are willing to defend the merits of above the other
7. Own at least one knitting book, bonus points if knitting books constitute your "bathroom reading"
8. Have lusted after a particular skein of yarn
9. Shopped at a LYS and/or been part of a Stitch n' Bitch
10. Know how to use at least two types of needles (circular, dpns, cable, etc)

bonus points for knitting while intoxicated

*Thanks to Chris for writing out these rules :)
