Most things look a little nutty from the outside("extreme" sports, modern art, and statistics come to mind). I think it's a little nutty to go through a whole day without fondling a little yarn.

Dorothy

How would anyone manage to think themselves normal if they couldn't think someone else nuts?

Love that yarn!

Oooooooooooooooh!!! This better not be The Vest I've Been Searching For! You really do have a way of reading my mind (scary) and coming out with WAY better patterns than I've previously been able to find. That would mean I'll have to frog the one I've been working on for the last week, and Hubband will think I'm fer sure crazy (it really freaks him out when I frog. Sometimes I do it just to amuse myself.)

{{Sorry about the double-comment. I think I got too excited. Made a little mess over here, too.}}

I think you might mean topstitching on lapels. I've never seen pintucks on lapels, pintucks are sort of channels in the fabric made by little folds.

"No wonder non-knitters think what we spend hours and hours thinking about, working on, hoarding for and discussing, is bunk."

Never thought about it that way. You may have something there (besides a partially done vest-lovely colors btw).

Wendy

That is what I mean (although I have a cotton quilt on my bed that was labeled as pin-tucked...it looks a lot like the effect in the picture).

Renee

Can't wait to see it finished!

Marion

oh oh I'm sure it will be wonderful!!! Can't wait to see it! Nutts yes im that and crazy and out of my Tree, ect ect ect so what? LOL Marion

Ooo, I think I recognize that yarn! Are you going to TNNA? I'll be there! Let's HANG OUT!!!! Sorry I missed you in Cali, things got VERY busy....

Ricky

Funny, I've always associated UFOs as being unfinished works not currently in progress (i.e. put down and forgotten or put down and weighing on one's conscience but not enough to tempt one away from the current WIPs).

Jen in KS

Nah. I was using "UFOs" and "WIPs" when I was cranking out quilts, long before I was a knitter, too. And quilters are thought goofy for cutting apart perfectly good pieces of cloth just to sew the patches back together again.

Brandy

To be fair, we are kind of nuts!

Cassie

Oh. So. Happy.

Claire

Sometimes I think that all I'm knitting is a blob...keep pulling and tugging to see if it's turning out the way I imagine in my head, not always the case!!

Liz

the stitching would actually be called picking and it's purpose is solely to add some interest!

Laura

I am new to knitting but it has ALWAYS been something I wanted to get into. I never thought anyone would think it was weird... Then my boyfriends family came along. I am teaching my boyfriends mom to crochet, so I didn't think it would be odd to bring my knitting with me to work on while she was mastering some new skills. But his WHOLE family gathered around me to watch and ask questions like, "how does it become something?" "how do you know where you are?" "how are you making something without a pattern?" "so it's essentially a series of knots that string together and make something?"
I swear it was the weirdest thing they'd ever seen. I never anticipated that it could be construed as "weird" until that moment in time.

What, may I ask, is that beautiful blackberry-y yarn? I want it!!

Wendy

It is from Red Rock Fiber Works: http://www.redrocksfiberworks.com/

Kyle Kunnecke

not sure if you meant to do it or not, but the color of that green (is it waste yarn?) with the project color is AMAZING :) -
