The funnies are back! This is another edition of the Friday funnies, where we take a look at knitting humor and just anything weird or whacky in the world of knitting. As always, if you know any knitting jokes or have an interesting link to something in the world of knitting/fiber arts, please forward them to me through the comments or by email. Here we go for this week.
This week I’d like to promote a book that’s out that is absolutely hilarious. Franklin Habit has released a collection of cartoons in a book called IT ITCHES. Click on the title or front cover picture below for purchasing details. If you like to have a laugh about knitting, then this book is great. It is published through Interweave Press and is the brainchild of Franklin Habit, a knitter and spinner from Chicago.This is the cover of the book which I think is hilarious!
The book is great. It’s not just a bunch of cartoons either – there are essays written by famous people in history that you might not even realized were knitters. Here is an excerpt from the book …
There is also the continuing adventures of Delores the sheep. This book is 125 pages of fun that is sure to delight knitters and non-knitters alike. It would make a great gift as well! Here is another cartoon from the book.
Franklin also has a blog here that has more humor from this truly unique mind. If your LYS doesn’t have the book, you should request they get it or follow the links above (the title or front cover picture) to get it. I promise it will have you in stitches.
