knitting goof

I ripped this pic out of one of those “as seen on tv” catalogs. Love the knitting needles with the crochet granny square blanket. Bonus points for working with six yarns at the same time!

    That is so funny. Do the folks who put these ads together not think that an experienced knitter or crocheter is going to notice the glaring discrepancy??

  3. thats as bad as the toilet paper ad on tv about 10 years back — charmin, i think that had the animation of a bunch of women with knitting needles around a quilt frame.

    but then when it comes to cars, I don’t know a tire from a battery, actually I do! (meaning it was likely a male ad executive who composed the photo)

    HILARIOUS!!! I have seen that and didn’t even notice…but then…I’m not as quick with granny squares as you are ;)

    She is really talented! I know there are ways to knit with a crochet hook, but I never heard of using 2 knitting needles in the same hand to make crochet. We need a tutorial!
