Loved this from Dundee
« on: December 14, 2016, 11:03:57 pm »
Road rage woman making her court appearance (she punched another woman in the face - Dundee can be like that) claimed that she was on her way to the yarn shop to buy knitting supplies (strange mitigation, but there you go) and not deliberately following the other driver.


The judge ordered her to do various pieces of knitting for charity before she came back for sentencing - presumably proving she wasn't fibbing.  She came back with some satisfactory knitted items, which were duly handed on to charity.  She didn't seem to get any punishment.   Different!!

There was a thread on Ravelry round about the time of the sentencing, with some doubts being cast on her ability to deliver. Those doubts would appear to have been unfounded! :knit:

Oh I missed that first time around.  It didn't show what the items were she knitted and if they were sold or recycled by the charity........      Still, novel sentencing  :knit:

I don't think there is any point in sentencing her if the other driver gave her the needle. The tension must have been too high. Anyway it has me in stitches.  :roflanim: :knit: :wave:

She sounds like a bit of a crochet to me.
