When attending fiber-related conventiona - whether for wool growers, spinners, knitters, crocheters, needlework, quilting, felting, rug hooking – we generally find vendors selling lapel pins with an array of funny (to us, at least), messages on them. I’ve started collecting the sayings. If you have one to add, e-mail it to me at sweatyknitter.com and I’ll ad it to the list!
In alphabetical order:
Crocheters do it on the couch.
Crocheters do it with chains.
Feel safe at night; sleep with a knitter.
Fiber artists use fuzzy logic.
Handspinners are twisted.
I’m a knotty hooker.
I’m a thread head.
I knit so you can live.
I will dye laughing.
Knitters do it on the couch.
No knitting, all bitching!
Not all magic wands are pointy little sticks.
Old knitters never die. They just come unraveled.
S.A.B.L.E: Stash Amassed Beyond Life Expectancy.
Spinners do it with a twist.
Spinning: Because knitting is not weird enough.
Tailgate at your own risk: I’m knitting.
Walk softly a carry a big hook.
You’re going to die anyway, so you might as well knit.
By the way, my all time favorite lapel pin reads: “I don’t have hot flashes; they’re power surges.”
