i have discovered that knitting needles are most useful for PUTTING YOUR EYES OUT when you are incapable of deciphering online instructions on "turning" stitches.

Not being a knitter my own self, I can only issue a supposition...but I think it's safe to say that maybe reading Oedipus Rex before getting with the yarn isn't the smartest thing to do.

it's destined to be a scarf for nekkid Mimi - pictures of course forthcoming...

Katy said...

will Seg allow Mimi to wear clothes?

BabelBabe said...

yes, for some reason now he will. he actually asked for the scarf.

do you suppose she's a house elf and he wants to free her? I could really use a house elf....

Suse said...

The idea of Badger crocheting, is so very very wrong.

I've had days like this.

Funny -- Suse is my knitting muse, too!
