So, like many knitters, I keep loosing my tape-measures. They're there one minute, gone the next, even after I switched to my new, handmade and super-spiffy notions purse.
I had a nice red retractable dressmakers tape of a very sensible sort, before; it fitted into my super-spiffy purse, it looked normal and sensible. It looked like this -
So now ask yourself - what did I get?
Do you want one? Do you really want one?
There. See? You're not normal either.
Ps There's one shaped like a pig's face as well. A PIG'S FACE. Who thinks of measuring and then immediately thinks, hey, pig face!
