There is clever knitting and there is ill-concieved knitting.
Trouble's post showed some very good knitting. You should read her post, there at the link on the left. But here is the link to the clever, artful knitting.
And then there is the woefully ill conceived knitting.
I love a nice glass of wine at the end of the day, but not enough to knit a scarf for it. Many thanks for this picture to a Gentle Reader, who suggested that this is what we might knit if we had no family or friends.
