From an episode of Grey's Anatomy. Meredith takes a vow of celibacy and replaces sex with knitting to keep her mind busy. When a man asks her out on a date she tries to find an excuse to say no and simply says "I am knitting a sweater." This term is to be used when you have decided to make a willing and conscious effort to not date or have sex.
Joe: "Hey Kelly do you want to go to a movie with me on Friday night?"
Kelly: "Sorry I can't, I'm knitting a sweater."

Mary: "I am SO sick of men's bullcrap. I am going to start knitting a sweater!"
