My Dream - Stockinette Run-Through

Maybe I'm knitting too late at night or something, but last night I dreamt that I was at this high school football game and the cheerleaders were all lined up to have the football team smash through their run-through. But... it was a knitted run-through - all stockinette - and a couple of the cheerleaders on either end were frantically knitting to try to finish it. Unfortunately, I either woke up or I don't remember anything - I wish I could've seen the players actually try to bust through it.

What fiber yarn were they using? Needle size?

Hahahaha only a hardcore knitter would think to ask that

You're terrible Albert. I'd have to go back into my dreams. Seems like it would've had to have been fairly large needles and probably just plain wool?

Dude if those men were in my dream I wouldn't be worried about knitting (for once)...

But seriously I associate weird things with knitting, sound waves (sin waves) interweaving when I'm playing the piano become a visual picture of reverse-stockinette.. if that makes sense.

Unfortunately, like I said, the team never showed up... so I found this pic. I started associating almost everything with knitting, well not everything, but you're right... lots of things. And now you're start noticing what people are wearing and will know what the stitches are, etc. Fun stuff!!
