The evil that knitters do…

13 Jul

Every history has its darker chapters, and the history of knitting is no exception.

We recently sold in our eBay store a book of knitting machine patterns from the 1970s.

People actually perpetrated these crimes.

Upon their children.

Like this boy wasn’t disadvantaged enough by his unfortunate resemblance to Damien Thorn.

Some day, he will even the score with the people who did this to him.

It will not be pretty.

      This is how I amuse myself while packing stuff to post. I make up stories about the items I’m packing and/or the people who bought them.

    And I have had that evil inflicted on me!! I think it is a knitter’s duty to make his/her children and rellies wear designs from yesteryear!!

    If the book is from the seventies, he has probably already wreaked his vengeance!

    I’m worried that the pants were all knitted too…

      Yes. Yes they were. It’s the most tragic part of the whole thing.
