Knitting superstitions!

Did you know about these knitting superstitions:
1.It's bad luck to leave a project unfinished. The intended recepient will get bad luck from the unfinished item.
2.Stabbing your needles though your yarn balls brings bad luck to anyone who wears something made from that yarn.

3.Don't knit a pair of socks for your boyfriend or he'll walk away from you. He'll walk away but will he walk back? It might be an effective way to rid yourself of a pest.

4.If you knit one of your own hairs into a garment, it will bind the recipient to you.

5.Knitting for children you may have in the future, but before you are pregnant, is bad luck (it may prevent one from getting pregnant, or bring ill health to the baby).

6.Don't stop knitting when you are only on the cast-on row, or the project will never be finished. At least now I have something to blame all those UFO's on

7.Cast-on for your next project immediately after finishing one. It's bad luck for your needles to be empty. No problem there

8.When knitting a pair of socks, the second sock must be started immediately after casting off the first and finishing the first must be postponed until the knitter has time to cast-off, and cast-on the next sock at the same sitting.

9.Knitting as a voodoo doll -- ripping out your knitting while picturing someone you don't like is a way to "hex" them.

10. Never HAND knitting needles to a friend, they can stab the friendship. Put them down and let the friend pick them up. How many of us are guilty of stabbing a friend? At least now we know.
