Knitted a fingerprint off

Wow that is cool, I never would have thought you could just knit your fingerprints away. Mine are all gone all ready from guitar, well the left hand anyway.

I guess that most of us don’t even think about our fingerprints, unless we’re robbing a bank. :teehee:

I tried checking mine, but they’re all dry and crackly from the winter weather. I’ve been having to put lotion on them constantly.

That is amazing! What a funny fact. If I ever write a crime novel (knitting/crime) which I’ve been thinking of I am going to include this for sure!

I was just thinking that this should show up on one of the CSI shows. Trying to track down criminal knitters.

Do any of you have problems with touchpads or touch screens? My husband has bad psoriasis on his fingers and when it’s healing he doesn’t have fingerprints and the machines won’t register his touch…

checked my fingers, and sure enough there are smooth spots–just thought it wasthat i was getting old!!linknit41

The loss is temporary - the print ridges are ingrained deep in the tissue, they will always grow back the same unless you had some really serious tissue damage or surgery, or a cut that puts a scar in the middle of them.

hi lucy–can you tell me what 4 wheels of unspun yarn is? i am looking at a pattern in a magazine and that what it calls for–thought it might be a irish, english term that we dont know here in the States western New York that is --thanks for your help–trying4yrstoknit

I’m guessing that it’s roving but I’m not sure but I think it comes in wheels and is possible to knit unspun - never seen any though.

So people are talking about not being able to be printed for nursing jobs and whatnot, so what exactly do the authorities do at this point? Print your feet? :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve been knitting for about a year now, and still have all my fingerprints - obviously I’m not working hard enough!!! :slight_smile:

Oh my God!!! The knitter did it. But which one? None of them have fingerprints.:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:
