Not saying I'm bored or anything :teehee: ...but I found these while killing time at work. I haven't taken them yet...so I don't know if they are easy/hard.

Good Luck, and don't think TOO hard :thinking:

Quiz #1: Knit With It-How much do you know about the craft of knitting? (http://www.funtrivia.com/trivia-quiz/Hobbies/Knit-With-It-217190.html)

Quiz #2: Knitwittery-Knitting terms and jargon can confuse the novice - how familiar are you with some of the common terms encountered in knitting patterns? (http://www.funtrivia.com/trivia-quiz/Hobbies/Knitwittery-225215.html)

Quiz #3: Purls of Wisdom-Knitting rocks my world! Have you taken up the sticks yet? Take the challenge -- this quiz is easier than an Aran Island pullover - promise! (http://www.funtrivia.com/trivia-quiz/Hobbies/Purls-of-Wisdom-1-224430.html)

ETA--POST YOUR SCORES (if you dare :oops: )
ETA2--4th Quiz on Socks posted a few down :thumbsup:

Quiz #1 - 8/10
Quiz #2 - 9/10
Quiz #3 - 10/10
Quiz #4 - 10/10

Although I will say that these quiz's seem to be designed for Americans with the terminology that they employ...

Now enough mucking around and back to some chores :teehee:

One more! Now, I can't take this, because I've never made socks.

Knitting For Your Feet: If you've ever worn a pair of hand knit socks, you know how wonderful they are. They're softer, warmer, and better fitting than anything you could ever buy in a plastic package at a store. How much do you know about making these lovely garments?

On all 4 quizes I scored 70/80/100/ and 90.

Hmm, better study a bit more. But then I had never heard that English style was more "lady like".

I think my brain is fried from a four-hour swim meet ... not me swimming but my son's school team.

At least I got all of the sock questions correct!

Thanks for posting these. They were actually fun!

Knit With It (The trivia quiz) I SUCK!!! 5/10 Horrible. Don't know much about the history of knitting, do I?

Knitwittery (the how-to quiz) 9/10, much better! At least I know how to knit!!

Purls of Wisdom (the beginner quiz) 10/10 HA!

Knitting for Your Feet (the sock quiz) 9/10 NOT BAD!!

So, basically, if you want to know HOW to knit, I'm your girl. If you want to know the history of knitting, you're better off asking someone else!

:roflhard: This was fun!!

As you can tell, I don't know much about knitting history. My husband was surprised when I missed a sock question. I've been on a sock knitting frenzy lately, and he thought I'd get them all. :rofl:

What do I win? :??

And if I know so much about knitting then how did I manage to drop a stitch in the middle of my hourglass cable socks, in dark blue wool on size one needles, and why can't I find the frigging dropped stitch? :wall: :doh: :wall: :doh:

Frog pond - here I come. :pout: :pout:

I got 80 on the first, 60 on the second and 100 on the third.
