The Horrors of Knitting

So I haven't actually got anything to show this week for Fo Friday, however I have a killer excuse! Here is the current view of my knitting bag

I have been unable to get any closer as there was a huge and I really do mean huge (not matter what the husband says!) spider in my craft room! Now I don't have a normal dislike of spiders, I am genuinely terrified, they make me cry! So I basically saw said spider, screamed and hot footed it out of there and haven't been back since! I peaked round the door for this shot (all for the good of the blog!) The husband did go to look for it but it had retreated back to its lair to plan its next attack! Now husband is a fairly rational person and said he would just get my knitting bag and I could knit downstairs quite happily! I however, am not rational and never about spiders and explained to husband that the spider might be in the knitting bag now and when I unsuspectingly put my hand in, it would get me! Well husband laughed, I went off the whole idea and ergo no knitting done in days!

I'm really starting to miss it though so husband said he would personally look through the bag inspecting for evil spiders and then do another sweep of the craft room to make sure. So hopefully knitting will resume this weekend!

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, The Horrors of Knitting!

  1. Your husband sounds like a peach. :) And I love the photo---somehow it does look kind of scary, like a shot from a horror movie! I hope that your knitting bag and craft room are safe and spider-free ASAP so you can resume making awesome stuff!

  2. Oh I don't like spiders either, but I grew up surrounded by forests so spiders don't freak me out too much. But I hope you'll be able to knit soon. :)

  3. I completely understand you about the spiders! I saw one near our couch the other day, and tried to kill it, but it fell behind the couch. Since the couch is a bit too heavy for me to move, I have no idea if it's dead, or if it escaped. As my yarn bag sits near the couch, I'm afraid that if it did survive, it's laying in wait to attack me :(

  4. Eeek! I sympathise completely. Spiders freak me out too, I'd be very traumatised if one disappeared into my stash!

  5. tehehe, LOVE it! Spiders I can handle but mice...or missing hamsters (long story) are another thing. Hopefully you will get back to knitting soon.

  6. Oh, I hope your husband has been able to go through your knitting bag for you! I'm not scared of spiders, but my sister is. And we all have something that makes us go crazy!

  7. awwww, I hope the husband took care of it for you! I hate spiders, too! I'd scream like a little girl if one got in my knitting bag.

  8. what a funny fiber friday blog post! I mean, I know you didn't mean it that way, but I thought it was hysterical. At least you have a great excuse why you didn't finish anything!

  9. I don't blame you avoiding not only the room but the bag as well, I'd do exactly the same thing!

  10. Mice freak me out just like spiders do you. Until I finally gave up and got cats, I had pretty much ceded the 1st floor of my rowhouse to them! I'd have to dump the bag out and poke everything with a stick!
