Take Grey's Anatomy. It takes some courage to admit that I just spent the past couple of months watching every episode of that abominable show. But it was all in the name of research! What was I researching? Um...knitting, of course!
In one episode, when love doesn't go her way, Meredith swears off men and takes up knitting. Observe:
Stupid Grey's Anatomy. Knitting ≠ celibacy! Well, it did for the first 23 years of my life, but now things have changed. I assure you that sex and yarn can peacefully coexist.
Alex: You knitting like some Jane Austen prune because you screwed Bambi and you have a hidden sister?
Ooh, knitting and scrabble. Great combo.
But Izzy--you knit the guy you like a sweater in a day? And wore it for 3 hours? Yeah-freaking-right. Oh, and ever hear of the sweater curse? If you knit a guy a sweater, you two will break up. That's why Pete still doesn't have a sweater from me. I was waiting until we got married. You can't be too careful. No wonder Denny died! Oops, spoilers.
Expect more trashy knitting research soon!
