Ways To Celebrate April Fool's Day In the Knitting World, Part III

*  Announce in a sock knitting forum that kitchenering the toes is passe, and that you prefer to dining room yours.

*  Tell everyone that you aren't actually knitting, but doing a lesser-known two-handed method of crochet.

*  Email your favorite lace designer and ask if there are any instructions for adding a few pom poms to her most popular shawl design.

*  Announce to your local stitch and bitch that you don't really have much of a problem with Second Sock Syndrome, but that third sock really gets to you sometimes.

*  When you hear a fellow knitter say, "Oh, I could never do that," agree with her wholeheartedly and suggest that she stick to garter stitch scarves.

*  Start a group on Ravelry solely devoted to INCREASING one's yarn stash.  Adopt such slogans as "Global Warming affects sheep too," "Sharing is Stupid," and "Get it before someone else does."
