Christmas knitting funny

I’m crossing the finishing line, I’m one teddy bear paw and one mitten thumb close to finishing my Christmas knitting.

Anyhow… I can tell I’m needing a break because I was finishing up the palm of the second mitten.

I laid it on top of the first mitten and went :noway: I’ve messed up the decreasing and… the second one is shorter than the first. Noticeably so…

And here is me, starting to cry because I am now going to have to knit a 4th mitten for this nephew because my second and third ones don’t match. The first one was rejected in a trial by my SIL.

Anyhow… my son comes up and tries to comfort me. “Aw Mom, don’t cry… can’t you do that farting thing? That should help!”

Um what?

“You know, where you go, ‘Oh For Pete’s Sake! I made a mistake and now I have to go back so many rows.’ and then you fart and go back!”

Oh, FROG-ging… Duh!

So… now the mittens are the same length and I didn’t have to knit a 4th mitten. :smiley:

So when in doubt… remember to have a good ‘fart’ as it tends to relieve some pressure and make things better!

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :thumbsup: !.

That’s so sweet!


That was cute, I really did laugh out loud! :teehee:

A good fart!!:thumbsup: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

Out of the mouths of babes… best laugh I’ve had all day!:roflhard:

Nice new hat you’ve got there!

Oh too funny, I am crying from laughing so hard.:rofl:

how cute!

Leave it to a male child! That’s adorable and really funny!:rofl:

I’ve been trying to teach myself to knit to no avail. The videos on this site must help a lot of people, but not me. Even though I have no idea what you are talking about, your story was very cute and made me feel a little better.

Ya know, I think I like farting better than frogging! :roflhard:

Welcome! Frogging is a term we use in knitting when we have to take something out. We have to “rip-it” out. You will become familiar with frogging as time goes on. It’s happened to the best of knitters! Right Ingrid? Right Amy?

:roflhard: Just read this to my husband and he is laughing so hard. Yes it is a good thing to fart at time of high frustrations!:roflhard::roflhard:

What a great story! Thanks for the laugh :slight_smile:

I finally wiped the tears out of my eyes so I can see to type. That is the funniest thing I have heard in quite a while. Thanks for the good laugh.:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:
