call the yarn police - there's been a moiduh


Police Officer: Soco, you get a photo of that?
SOco: Sure Inspector, just before the Doc arrived.
Police Officer: Ah, Dr Double-point, I didn't see you there....
Doc: Hmmm, I think there may be a serial knitter involved>
Police Officer: Surely knit, I mean, not. What gives you that idea?
Doc: Well, there was that case that Professor Crochet unraveled a coupla months ago - the Britanny hook embedded in a KSH flower. Last month Doctor Silvie Circular had to deal with a particularly harrowing situation when a shawl was found hanging off the Erskine Bridge, held up only by an Addi Turbo.
Police Officer: C'mon, what's your double-point, Dr Double-Point?
Doc: That's exactly my Double-point! Look at the victim, officer!:
Police Officer: Ah, double points....See what you mean. Cashmere, too....
Doc; A heinous crime - seems to be committed by someone who knows the doctor's duty rosters....
Police Officer: sergeant! Any witnesses?
Sergeant: Knit really, but a woman was seen rushing from the scene, leaving a trail of stitch markers in her wake. Seems there was provocation, so maybe this isn't the serial knitter...
Police Officer:?
Sergeant: Well, the neighbours say that the woman at clickety-click pointy sticks, I mean sixty-six, had cast-on for this Smoke ring THREE times.Then, to cap it all, she started working the last pattern first..
Police Officer:So, whatya sayin'? The knitting deserved it?
sergeant: Knit at all, but there were 178 stitches in each round. The cashmere is 4-ply. She'd done 8 rows,....
Police Officer: See what you mean...

Brilliant post, thanks for the chuckles. "Knit really" is cracking me up and am I correct in imagining Scottish accents?

Hi India, you asked if I could give you some links as to where you could find a second hand knitting machine. I bought my machines off ebay so that would be the first place I would look. The only trouble with buying off ebay is that you might not get instruction manuals with the machine or some of the tools might be missing. A good place to ask for advice is the people in that group are very helpful and will give you tips and encouragement when you ask for help with any problems you might be having when you are learning.
Good luck, Susan.
