This week, Knitting Friday is global for the first time. It’s a digest of the top stories of the week, in knitting. This is normally inflicted on the medical receptionists of Clevedon, but for this week we’re going international. That’s probably not a good thing for the globe, but it’s pretty good for the knitting.

So what’s new?

Angela Merkel has another term in office. So we’re celebrating everything that is German.

Odd, but German. That means it’s OK.

A German themed tree-warmer. Just because.

It’s a German Shepherd dog. It even barks Teutonically (if that’s a word).


It’s not Germany without Lederhosen. Pass the Schnapps.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more disturbing. Although technically this should be disqualified because wasn’t William Tell Swiss? And this is crochet anyway. Really really wrong crochet.

Should you want to find more knitting wrongness, it’s all here: http://avaxnews.net/disgusting/Broken_Heroes_Exhibition.html

Or at least some of it is. One never knows, there might be more disturbed handicrafts next week.
