To reinforce his hopes, he developed the following rules:
1st RULE: You do not talk about KNIT CLUB.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about KNIT CLUB.
3rd RULE: If someone says "frog" or the knitting goes limp and falls off the needle, the knit is over.
4th RULE: Only two socks make a pair.
5th RULE: One project at a time.
6th RULE: No aran, no fairisle.
7th RULE: Knits will go on as long as they have to.
8th RULE: If this is your first night at KNIT CLUB, you HAVE to knit.
I think rule 6 needs some adjustment but generally I think it works.
