Knitaphobia: stop it before it stops you!
I sent off that comment to Sandra's post and then I started thinking: knitaphobe knitaphobe . . . Knitaphobia!
Can't you just see it? The Girl Who Was Afraid To Knit! See her run screaming through the woods at the sight of double points! Watch her cower in the bushes when the new Vogue Knitting arrives! See her secretly stroke handknit garments in the dark of night when she thinks no one is watching her . . .
Knitaphobia: it's real, it's here, and only SuperWash can save her now!
I was a knitaphobe once too, Sandra. There is a cure but it involves very sharp pointed objects, mass quantities of fiber, and a ritual so secret, so shrouded in mystery, that only The Great Elizabeth Zimmerman knew what it was and that great knitting goddess took the secret with her when she left us.
We have her interest, knitters, but we haven't closed the deal. Any ideas on how to woo the resident knitaphobe over to the Woolly Side?
