This week for Halloween I will be telling horror stories - Knitting Horror Stories Mwahhhh~ mwahhhhh~ mwwwahhhhhh!!!!!!
A lady walks into the yarn shop caring a garbage bag full of knitting.
“What ya making?” the clerk asks.
“A blanket for my boyfriend” the lady responds, “but it is taking forever.”
“Let’s have a look” the clerk says. So the lady pulls out The Blanket. As she is pulling and pulling and pulling out The Blanket, she tells the clerk that she doesn’t have a pattern, she just bought the longest circular needle she could find and some yarn and just casted on….. She had only knit 1 1/2 feet [.5 Meters] deep and it had taken over a month….
The Clerk gazed at the pile of knitting heaped upon the table. She removed the needle and spread out the knitting to discover 24 feet of The Blanket
The knitter agreed that fringes was GREAT! They cut The Blanket into 4 equal pieces, removed 3 of the CO rows, graphed them together and she left with a 5′ x 6′ [1.5 Meters x 1.8 Meters] Blanket almost completed.
