I usually save the fun or strange knitting news for Fridays, but this one is so good I had to post it right away.
I’m not entirely sure I understand the reports coming out of Dundee (that’s in Scotland), but it sounds like Amanda McCabe wasn’t too thrilled with the way Clare Smith was driving, so she followed her in her car for miles, eventually boxing her car in, getting out and hitting Smith on the head.
But McCabe, who admits to hitting Smith, says she wasn’t acting out of road rage, but was only going to the knitting store.
The assault happened near The Knitting Pin, a specialty wool shop, the Telegraph reports.
And because McCabe said she’s a “keen knitter,” instead of being fined for her crime she was asked by the judge to produce knit items to be sold for charity.
Sheriff John Rafferty said she must return in five months with her knitting. He said it should “not be a meagre amount. You have committed a serious offence but you have a chance to do something useful with your time.” Her sentencing has been delayed until December when the judge will, er, judge her knitting.
What do you think of this sentence?
