What NOT to knit

I spend quite a lot of time browsing when I’m not knitting – for all the lovely things I can make when I have time and perhaps grow a couple of pair of spare knitting arms. And for some reason, it suddenly occurred to me (I’m not unique! Have a look at this blog – What Not to Knit) that there must be a list of things that should just never be attempted.

I don’t mean to belittle people’s efforts, or sound superior. But, really?! I’m not surprised that some men run screaming for the hills when it’s suggested that they put on something hand-made.

    Those last shorts come with their own skidmark! Lol. Talk about bad striping luck.πŸ˜‚

    If the shorts were done in black they might work better. Something so dark that the stitches didn’t show (and no skidmarks either.)
