the problem was the yarn was only avaialable in brown shades, not a very easter color

03-08-2007, 12:03 PM
she felt her rabbit didn't really have an appreciation for hand knitted items so...

03-08-2007, 01:57 PM
she decided to sit her rabbit down and tell it everything she knew about knitting so it could better appreciate the craft, but....

but the happy, hoppy rabbit was too darned fast. She cried out "Silly Rabbit, Tricks are for kids!" and whipping out her KP Options she. . .

knitted up a sweater that even that funny bunny couldn't resist. But in doing so...

03-08-2007, 08:04 PM
...she wound up knitting her hair into the bunny sweater. That wasn't a problem until...

03-08-2007, 08:40 PM
she realized, even though the funny bunny found the sweater irresistible, he still wouldn't wear it. Bunnies can be so darn stubborn! And all that hair wasted for nothing. So then she...

03-08-2007, 08:52 PM
gave the sweater to her doll, and bought a wig to match the doll's hair. the bunny was so jealous that...

03-08-2007, 11:58 PM
she suddenly awoke, screaming, and clutching her beautiful red hair! (Which was thankfully still attached to her head).
That's right, it had all been a dream, the shopping, the knitting, the bunny who didn't properly worship the malabrigo.
She got up out of bed, her tummy rumbling. She was about to slip on her pink and fushia felted clogs, when she noticed...

03-09-2007, 01:09 AM
there were bunny tooth-marks all over the clogs, and bunny was missing from his cage! maybe, just maybe...

03-09-2007, 10:15 AM
it really had happened. Who knew? Maybe she was imagining it. But then again...

03-09-2007, 10:38 AM
she had always thought that her beloved bunny looked at her with cold eyes when there was a full moon.

Suddenly, she heard...

03-09-2007, 11:29 AM
This awkward, evil laugh and the sound of clicking knitting needles....

03-11-2007, 03:44 PM
She followed the laugh down the hall, she found that her favorite knitted sweater had become a ball of yarn. In disbelief she watched as her bunny knitted a........

"Aha!" said the evil looking frog. "You have discovered my secret. I am not your sweet little bunny after all, but an evil prince in disguise. The only thing that can break this spell and turn me back into a handsome prince is..."

"Scooby Snacks!"

Oh shoot said the evil frog, I told you the magic words, now I will have to take away your powers of gauge. He laughed an eeevail froggie laugh as his froggie finger floated towards his little green mouth.

The song came unbidden to her lips, and burst through..."It's not easy being green...", BUT as she was singing to the evil little froggie,

... looking down, that her fingers and palms had the same paisley print as her new booga bag, imprinted on the skin!! What the ... ?!?!?!! ... Looking back at the bag over her shoulder ...

03-12-2007, 08:55 PM
...she noticed; not only was the booga bag a beautiful paisley, but the entire ROOM was paisley! And also, spinning, in psychadellic neon colors.

After a quick visit by her local CSI detectives, they determined she'd touched the frog, then applied lip balm with her pinky.

It was the equivallent of toad-licking.

YES, it's true, our dear knitter was on an acid trip.

A housecall by, strangely enough, Dr. House, who is dreamy and also my husband, followed.
He recommended bedrest followed by knitting, and told her to never lick her new booga/frog bag.

After resting, she felt better, but had a hard time staying in bed;
She found out her Local Yarn Store was having a get-together involving...
