    I think this is fairly self-explanatory.

    I do not know why but there was an old english film ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Old...se_(1963_film) ) where a lady was killed with knitting needles through her throat and that scene jumped into my mind as soon as I looked at your photos!

    I've never heard of that film, but I must look out for it - anything with Joyce Grenfell in it should be good. (I once got a knitting needle lodged behind my kneecap - not a pleasant experience. )

    I could explain how it happened (all too easily ), but your mental picture is probably more interesting.

    Seems to have the wheels (at least one tire) but not very mobile I'm afraid. I am looking for something I can cart my computer around on when I become a bag lady.

    That is awesome! It strikes very close to home, since my wife is an avid Knitter and a Spinner.
    Are those YOUR sheep? She is always in the market for roving.

    'Fraid not. Just some sheep in a field up the road that I used for purposes of illustration only. They're not even the right breed - the jersey is knitted in pure Merino wool, but we don't have any of those here.

    Glad you liked the clouds.

    I voted. It was difficult because there are a few *very* skillfully created photographs but then others illustrate the challenge concept a bit better.
    Great work by all involved! This is very impressive stuff.
