Lederhosen and Tutus and Other Knitting Fables
Sometimes when Megan was scrambling to get dressed in the morning, she put her clothes on in the wrong order.
Céline told Megan that adding built-in bras to one's knitwear would eliminate any issues with incorrect layering.
For her part, Agnes felt that wearing underwear as outerwear was the way to go, and she also assured a skeptical Céline and Megan that granny pants were making a big comeback.
Penelope had come up with the perfect way to get men to buy her drinks when out clubbing.
Isobel had discovered that she could save herself a lot of knitting time by stamping her designs with cabled patterns, only to discover that she fell down a scrapbooking rabbit hole once she stopped knitting.
Hilda felt her tribute to the drying machine, with its "Felted Hat", "Lint Ball Sweater", and "Dryer Sheet Skirt", had turned out well. She thought she'd try doing a late night laundromat run again the next time she was stuck for an idea.
With his new look, Alisdair paid loving tribute to both his grandpa, who was known for wearing natty bow ties, and to his grandmother's wallpaper.
Cody was thrilled with the way his attempt at felting his grandmother's afghan had turned out, and he was prepared to deal with anyone who dared to disagree with him.
Kimberley wondered why no one had ever combined a lederhosen and a tutu before. She felt they were a natural pairing.
Ainsley was exploring ways to tie a basic black wool pullover to a georgette print dress, and scorned the suggestion that she add some stripes to the pullover as "too obvious".
