This is from one of my favorite web comics, xkcd. Notice the "knitting"accident? Whooppee. We made it onto a web comic! Written by a young man who doesn't (as far as I know) knit!

Happy Friday everyone!

Hard to imagine a knitting-related accident, though. Suicide - yes. Accidental death? "She fell on her size 2, 12 inch steel straights and pierced her heart." No. "It was a mohair overdose." No. "The yarn cupboard disgorged its entire contents on top of her and she starved to death before anyone found her." Maybe. In fact, the way that I keep house, it's a definite possibility.

Haha, I considered texting you to go read XKCD.

Hey, Roxie, what about "It was a fatal heart attack brought on by the sight of a moth."?

What Roxie said. Hahahaha. Thanks for the laughs, already e-mailed it to my hubby.

Suppose the knitter bought unknown wool and found it contained something she was fatally allergic to? I'm more concerned about combining those last two--we knitting bloggers just about doubled our risk, there!

Or maybe she made her first visit to Rhinebeck and was overcome with so much joy her little heart gave out...

Thanks for the chuckle, Donna Lee!

Hahahaha! (They're the people who got stabbed by knitters - and at the emergency room the knitter said - he fell on my needles!)

There is a story by mystery writer Ruth Rendell that involves a murder with a knitting needle...

Here's a good one: You could die from the infection after sitting on a dpn and being too embarrassed to go to the emergency room to have it removed.

I could see me doing that...

Go Roxie--

How about, "Gauge accident at the neck-ribbing--strangled to death on own sweater!"
