Knit Purl

The WISE Club knitting in the pub group is getting a little wilder. Beer and knitting seem to agree.

Tonight we discussed Fontana, California, arming the schools and statistical facts around school shootings in the US and wondered why the paranoia was happening. More than 70,000,000 school children in the US and an average of 8 children killed a year since 1980.  The knitters talked about the science around labial piercing and the best location for perpetual orgasm, the development of local breweries, and how to spin metal with yarn to produce a product with sculptural potential. And nasty,nasty gynecologists.

The very cute bartender Norm became intrigued and checked out my needles and watched with fascination as a single cord turned into inches of cloth. He was scared to try the pink yarn. He said he'd try next time if there weren't too many people around.

Turns out the majority of us are Irish descendants. Which explains why we can knit while drinking and guffaw louder than any of the other patrons.

Next week I will be taught how to knit a hexy puff with round size 4 sock needles. And Em promises she will teach me how to knit obscene moose. Check out Nicole's knitting fanatic tattoos.
