A little humor today from our knitting group. Someone brought up the topic if there was a patron Saint of Knitting... it should be for drop stitches. WE all laughed and one of the girls volunteered to be that St. LOL. We also think there should be a Patron Saint of UFO's!
:)

There isn't a specific patron saint for knitters, but Saint Blaise is associated with woolworkers since, somewhat gruesomely, metal combs were one of the instuments of his martyrdom.

I rather like the collective nouns for frogs are an army, a colony and most appropriately A KNOT!

The Patron Saint of frogging might be St. Rippit

Please forgive the pun . . .

I must suggest the Pattern Saint of Knitting to be St Stitch!

Laugh Out Loud ! I love this thread of conversation -- it involves plays on words. Ok, now I can quit holding my stomach from laughing so much.

turns out there is a saint who is unofficially the patron of knitters. St. Rafqa (or "Rebecca" for us English folks) was a Lebanese Maronite Nun who was canonized by the late Pope John Paul II in 2001. This is one amazing woman! Born into a Christian family in 1832 and losing her mother at the age of 7, Rafqa felt a call to religious life at the age of 14. However, it would take 13 years before she'd finally be able to enter the Mariamettes Convent at the age of 27, eventually becoming a Lebanese Maronite nun in 1871.

But then, I found several others too! Personally, I like the St Ripit and St Stitch! Our good Lord has a great sense of humor !

As a side observation, I always thought patron saints were assigned to "afflictions" or things that were negatively affecting a persons life. I love knitting, it doesn't afflict me unless it falls under the "addiction" category and then, well yes, I am an addict!! Ha! This pic shows a bit of my yarn stash.

Surprised me! I was rather under the impression St John Vianney was Patron Saint of Priests, maybe he could set up a chain intercession, if you believe in such things.

I wish I had read this forum before I went to knitting today. when I wrote this I never knew there was a patron st for knitting. You learn something new all the time. I agree about the St. stitch and st. Ribbit. That was clever.

I went to the site. I found it interesting! Thank you for sharing. But I agree with St. Stitch.
