The "rules of Knitting":-

1) I can watch any trash I want on TV, so long as I am knitting.

2) Knitting and chocolate don't go together - I forgot my knitting, so pass me another chocolate.

3) Knitting is a diet aid; you can't eat and knit at the same time. I'll just get to the end of the row (and the next row and the one after that) before I eat a slice of your homemade (horrible) pie. "What? I forgot to taste your pie? Oh, I am sorry; I got carried away with my knitting."

4) Knitting is a civilised persuit that can be done anywhere. Designer Amy Tan was once approached by a man whilst knitting in a park. He said, "Aren't you too young to be doing that?" Amy replied, "Aren't you too stupid to know what I'm doing?"

5) Knitting is a defensive weapon; if you insist on swashing into the seat next to me whilst I'm knitting, I WILL insist on using my longest needles and jab you everytime you encroach on my space.
