I see occasional references and suggestions for KellyK regarding her famous rotating tag line (currently: Getting a dog to dress like a turkey is HARD. Knitting is just pulling loops through other loops!).

You all out there just crack me up, so how about sharing your own version of KellyK's line? As for me, after helping my son study for various tests and quizzes this school year, I'll have to say:

9th grade science is HARD. Knitting is just pulling loops through other loops!

And Kelly dear, is there a story behind dressing the dog like a turkey? Was it a Thanksgiving pagent of some sort? Was there a cat involved that was willing to be the pilgrim?

Posting your opinions on a public forum where everyone can judge you based on them is HARD... knitting is just pulling loops through other loops.
:hiding:
(I know you ladies [and the occasional gentleman] don't do that, but it's a hard phobia to overcome. I couldn't count the number of times on any forum that I've typed out a reply and then closed the window for fear of being wrong or sounding stupid.)

Which part do you mean? Posting your opinions, or judging the worth of others based on their opinions, or starting to respond and then closing the window?

What's this knitting thing you all speak of, anyway? Doesn't that require time, attention, patience, the ability to breathe? No wonder I'm not getting any of it done. :(
