We are so misunderstood

I was doing a crossword puzzle the other night - I know I should have been knitting - just taking a break from a sweater I had started in a nice wool and alpaca mix from Grand River Yarn. I have recovered from my steeking mishap. Well, the clue was "Crochet again" and I could see by the letters there, that the answer was "reknit."

There they go again. No real understanding of the needlework medium - sigh!
I always like the clues around "making lace" - "tatting". They suggest that the creators have at least made an effort!

I was hoping to get the answer to the clue "Pamphlets about tangling fibers?" - It's "ravel - something. Anyone do the double crossword in the Saturday Star - Nov 11?

I guess that it's time to see that movie Wordplay. Rochelle at Grand River Yarns - yes the same one as mentioned above - recommended it to me. Maybe it's also time to make a list of yarn suppliers and their other areas of interest so you can not only buy yarn but also get a quick recommendation for a great movie to see, book to read, wine to buy, CD to purchase, vacation spot, car..etc.

All suggestions welcome.

The picture is "Funky Zebra" from Red Bird Knits - fun sock patterns to puzzle out! See more on our what's new page -

I got the answer to "frozen spike" - icicle - they're coming!

Enjoy Carol

  1. I did the very same crossword and was so annoyed when the answer to "crochet again" was "reknit!" Don't these crossword composers know anything? Sheesh!
