Knitting Quotations

Here are a few knitting quotations to keep you amused. We're always looking for more, so add them with your comments please.

Learning how to knit was a snap. It was learning how to stop that nearly destroyed me. ~Erma Bombeck

The only place where housework comes before needlework is in the dictionary. ~Mary Kurtz

I keep my end tables full of needlework and quilting so I don't have to dust them. ~Author Unknown

Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit, either. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

A #6 aluminum needle has been known to furnish an excellent emergency shearpin for an outboard motor. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

Really, all you need to become a good knitter are wool, needles, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence. Of course, superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

JOKE: A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancingat the car, he was astounded to see that the woman behind the wheel was knitting! Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, "PULLOVER!"

"NO!" the woman yelled back, "IT'S A SCARF!"

Knitting still remains my most stimulating yet relaxing activity, and I thank the powers that be that I can make a living at it...I always pack my knitting or needlepoint project first when traveling. ~Kaffe Fassett
