Beware the Ides of March

Filed under: Notions — Tags: , — dusktreader @ 11:23 am

You could probably beware the Ides of any month, but March is an especially suspicious month to have Ides in. And so, inspired by Jezebel’s annual list of things to beware of this March 15th, I present you with my own list of things to beware of when you knit. Please feel free to read in your best mock voiceover in a horror movie trailer voice:

  • Dropped stitches that unravel several rows before you notice them
  • Eyelash yarn
  • Yarning forward instead of yarning over
  • Lost lifelines
  • Missing a row in your chart
  • Cats who chew right through your working yarn, forcing you to rejoin mid-row
  • All of your friends plotting to stab you in the back with your own knitting needles

It’s not too late to beware! Share your own things to beware of in the comments.



  1. – Projects that need to be sewn together at the end, but which never will, and HAUNT YOU FOREVER.
