Knitting drunk with wire sounds like a particularly dangerous proposition!

OOH! Knitting with wire! So cool.

Knitting drunk, not so much...but knitting buzzed is fun.

Hmm. I should get cracking on my peaceful palms. They've been hibernating in giganto-finger land for about a month now.

Wire knitting sounds like a lot of fun. I'll do nothing more complicated than garter or stockinette if I've been drinking. Dangerous things can happen otherwise.

I've been wanting to try that! You'll have to let us know how it goes.

Where on earth did you find that sign? That's hilarious!

Ooh, wire knitting! That sounds so fun. I can't wait to see what you knitted!

Fun, fun. I have a few recommendations. 24 gauge or smaller. I prefer 26 gauge or smaller. Use the backward loop cast-on. Don't even think about using the long-tail. Wooden needles. Enough said! Enjoy!

Oooh, that sounds like fun.

Knitting while on anything that says "don't operate heavy machinery" on it is also a no-no.

I LOVE the sign! Found them at knittersanonymous.com and have to also get me a Don't Knit and Drive bumper sticker! lol!

Can you add me to the Glove along? I sent you an email but perhaps it fell into the bit bucket. I have just tried out an I-cord finger and MUST MAKE MORE!
