Ambidextrous Interweavous


I just made that up but what does it sound most like to you?

A) A person with the ability to master both arts of knitting and crochet

B) A person with the ability to knit in both English and Continental methods.

C) A person with the ability to knit using the two handed Fair Isle method.

D) All of the above.

E) None of the above.

F) Don't know or don't care but it is still a fun phrase to say!



I thought of it as a pseudo-scientific name for being able to both knit and crochet.

Sounds like an adjective to me, "able to use both hands to read anything published by Interweave Press"

Yep, I agree with Valpuri, too. It's the "interweavious" part that does it. And it is a fun thing to say.
