Crochet Comic Relief

With our busy lives isn’t it about time we have some “Yarns” (Pun Definitely Intended). We all know some jokes; such as, ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?/Nock-Nock… Who’s there?’ type. But how many funny things can we say about our craft? So to fix that situation I found some jokes and yarns online I would like to share with you.

On Crochetville there were quite a few jokes that made me chuckle:

  • What do you call an unmarried stitch? -A single crochet!-
  • What happened to the naughty little afghan? -He got into treble!-
  • Why couldn’t the ball of yarn go play with his friends? -He was all tied up!-
  • How many crocheters does it take to change a light bulb?- Just one, but when she’s done, she’s going to want to crochet a cord pull for it, and a light cover, and then she’ll need to make matching valances, and of course the whole room will need new doilies and chair covers, and…-

I found these pretties from SockKnitters Forum:

  • Why did the knitter join a dating service? -Because she wanted to get en-gauge-ed!-
  • What kind of needlework is always angry? -Cross stitch!-
  • How do knitters travel?-By cable car!-
  • A piece of yarn walks into a bar and orders a beer, but the bartender snarls, “We don’t serve your kind here!”. The yarn is forced to leave. While sitting on the curb feeling sorry for himself, the yarn is suddenly hit with a brilliant idea. Working quickly, he ties himself into a knot and unravels his ends. Taking a deep breath, the yarn marches back into the bar and orders a beer.
    “Hey!” says the bartender. “Ain’t you that piece of yarn I just threw outta here?”
    “Nope,” replies the yarn, “I’m a frayed knot.”

An adorable short story on Shade Tree Crochet blog, had me splitting “stitches”:

  • -A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.

    For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife’s bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.

    When he opened it, he found two crocheted doilies and a stack of money totaling $95,000. He asked her about the contents. “When we were to be married,” she said, “my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doily.”

    “The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious doilies were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness.

    “Honey,” he said, “that explains the doilies, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?”

    “Oh,” she said, “that’s the money I made from selling the doilies.”-

Also one of my favorite comics is also a yarn comic on the Lion Brand website. Which you can read on the Lion brand site or you can subscribe to their newsletter and get Lola in your Inbox.

By far the funniest things always happen to us in real life. Crafting Bloopers are those little mistakes that we all make from time to time. What is one of your Crafting Bloopers? You show me yours, and I’ll show you mine!

P.S. My Blooper has to do with the Mohair I bought not long ago.
