Knitting by Judy @ 6:37 AM

You may have noticed, gentle reader, that our list of fellow Yarn Collectors is growing! The latest to join is Stephanie @ Knit Picky.

When I suggested to Stephanie that maybe we needed a secret handshake or something similar. She countered via email with this thought:

Maybe we need a needle routine, like the rifles at football games?

In my minds eye, I could see hundreds of knitters on the field, needles flashing in the sun: Needles right! Needles left! Knit two! Purl three! And Turn! And cable!

Of course the crowds in the stands would be going wild. What kind of show could possibly beat hundreds of knitters at half-time?

I know I am easily pleased, but the whole picture just set me to giggling. At work. I made a valiant attempt to control myself when people in adjoining cubes starting looking at me. In the end I needed to take a little walk to regain my composure.

I mean… maybe we could do a marching routine. Some of the knitters could have metal needles like Addi Turbos or the Knitpicks needles. And some could have bamboo or rosewood or ebony. And we could create different designs with the different colors as we marched…

See what I mean? The possibilities are endless!
