Once you look at it that way, as a sincere sort of loyalty, there is no denying that if you are going to knit everywhere, all the time, not every project is going to be appropriate for every situation. This means that I, or other knitters who have embraced this as a lifestyle, require a rather large assortment of different projects available to us in order to meet this goal.

Cass changes her breakfast cereal all the time, and she doesn’t even consider it a risk.
