Knitting Euphemism

"3 skeins short of a sweater"

Used: When a person is obviously crazy.

Origin: Don't ask.

do you really only need 3 more skeins?

I don't have my handy postcard with all the conversions with me.

DK weight... 1710 yrds. That seems like a sweater. No?

sounds about right (since that's almost a sweater in worsted weight for me). BTW, I'm thinking of cheating on malabrigo by knitting a Tilted Duster in the recommended yarn.

That's cute. Like you, I do have concerns about the cut out portion, too.
