Not For Amateurs

This warning appears on the back of the package my new knitting needles arrived in.  I always suspected that we were taking our lives into our own hands when we decided to knit.  Now I have proof.

" an untrained/unfamiliar person..."  That's pretty much it, my friends:  If you don't know what you're about, there's a chance you could get hurt.

Words to live by.  Knit Safely, Gentle Readers.
