Meanwhile on Facebook...

I do love predictive text errors, they're often more amusing than boring old typos and they also give you some mental exercise in working out what the poster meant to say.

Here are a couple from this morning's posts on the Creative Crochet Crew Group on Facebook.

From someone asking how to stop her attempts at Tunisian crochet curling up.

"...was getting a little irritating, so wanted onions before going on since i keep frogging[*] it."

A sudden craving for pickles, one wonders? :)

Also this was below a photo of pretty crochet stars.

"They are just great , I could see them as a hanging moral for kiddies room."

Very Victorian that one. I'm sure they would have approved of having "hanging morals" in the nursery to encourage good behaviour.



[*] To "frog" is crochet or knitting slang for unravelling something. Origin: You are going to rip it, rippit, rippit, rippit!
