words of wisdom

On the weekend I picked up a(nother) knitting related book - Yarn Harlot's At Knit's End.

I was reading it on the bus today when I came across this (on page 58, to be exact):

"Join, being careful not to twist
- knitting patterns

The chance of being able to join a multitude of stitches on a circular needle without twisting them and knittng a freak of geomoetry are influenced by the following variables:

  • The number of stitches
  • The amount of time allotted to perform the task
  • The material being knitted"

This seemed especially timely after yesterday's post, so I thought I'd share a few other things I've learned the past few days:

  • Wearing heels lowers your BMI. The higher the better.
  • Heels, however, will not help your ankles any.
  • People love cupcakes. You can instantly feel more popular and clever by posting pictures of cupcakes on Flickr.
  • To boys there is no difference between cucumber and zucchini.
  • Steamed cucumber tastes really weird.

  1. Even I know the difference between a cucumber and zucchini! You've denigrated my entire subspecies!!!

    P.S. Love the new look blog, particularly that striking pink column separator :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
