    I’ve been a knitter for over 50 years and have never held my needles upside down like that!

    I guess that’s proof that nobody else does either.

    Yes, and you can see that in these 13 years they upgraded the model of the TV set… but not the quality of the shows.

    I don’t think the quality of the shows has improved in the last 13 years :)

    One joke I have seen is take a mundane “G” rated show and selectively censor it you get the mistaken idea something “bad” is being said.

    She may be holding the needles in that position just to avoid loosing stitches while watching TV. and
    Ruthie may have been helping to bake cookies before they stopped to watch a show (or they may have something in the oven and be waiting to take it out) – looks like grandma made the apron from scraps of her shirt (as I would).

    I used to watch shows like the one on creators, but shows with many bleeped out words are just annoying (folks need to increase the vocabulary so they don’t have to use obscenities as fillers).

    Well, in all the knitting groups I’ve met with I’ve never seen ANYone hold needles like that while knitting. They’re just seen like that in cartoons by unobservant cartoonists.

    Yes, it persists to this day, and it always annoys me, too. I certainly didn’t learn to knit that way, and I’ve never seen anything resembling that ‘technique’ in any instruction manual. That said, on occasion I have seen a cartoonist get it right; wish I had those examples at hand now.

    Elsewhere: Clearly Rose didn’t see that coming!
