A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I have to thank Jody again this week. She alerted me to the new Drops patterns. Is it just me or does Drops sound like a Victorian euphemism for some sort of ailment? (I've been watching too much Deadwood, haven't I?) I don't know what the ailment is but I think I've isolated some of the symptoms.

It begins with knitting large sheets of stockinette with absolutely no shaping that the patient just drapes over her body.

It may also be tied in place with rope if the patient is worsening.

The patient then breaks out into bobbles.

Which, if left untreated, can progress to pom poms.

And then the final stage, dementia.
