Of course, Defarge may be the only instance of knitting that person knows, but still . . . . . .??? I suppose you could reply by saying: "Yes, now how do you spell your name?" and see if they get it!
Oh, that is so funny!!!!!!!! I am, seriously, rolling on the floor!!!!!
Oh, no, though, the lady who asked me is someone I know, she was just teasing me.
I must say though, Madame Defarge is quite the villain. Quite a terrifying book to read!!!
You are all so funny, I'm so glad I found you! It's hard to find kindred spirits these days. A few of my friends know how to knit, but aren't really into it. One gal I know knits a lot, but I don't see her hardly ever. It's nice to be able to discuss things with you very knowledgeable people.
BTW, does anyone know how old the youngest member on the site is?
