Hands up everyone, who here has had a knitting fail? Some people might be embarrassed by their mistakes, while others take the opportunity to share them with the world! Take a look at these hilarious tweets for when knitting goes WRONG!
I’ve loved trawling through these knitting fails! I love the fact that we knitters are happy to share our failures as well as our successes – and that our knitting friends understand completely!
Pets and yarn do not mix! Detangling is the worst job in the world!!!

This happens to me all the time! If I were really organised, I’d make a note and stuff it into a project bag … at least now with the LoveKnitting app I can tell where I was when I stopped!

Counting. The bane of a knitter’s life! How many of you have miscounted a long cast on? (Ah, too many to count!)

Is this all too familiar? I certainly feel Lisa’s pain – I too have knitted giant sweaters that are so thick I can’t wear them or they make me look like a giant smurf….

Lastly – one of the great truisms of knitting….
It is truth universally acknowledged that a woman in need of some dpns does not have that size in her large collection #knittingnightmare
