I roll my eyes and . . . guffaw. . . at idiotic warning labels on everyday products. You know . . .
Do Not Use While Sleeping (on my hair dryer)
Use Like Regular Soap (on my bar of Dial soap)
Suitable for Outdoor Use (on my rain gauge)
Never Iron Clothes On The Body (on my Rowenta iron)
Not For Highway Use (on the rim of the tire on my wheelbarrow)
But I'm kinda thinking. . . that I might need an idiotic warning label on my knitting instructions.
Something like . . .
WARNING: If lace pattern does not appear to line up appropriately, CONSULT THE DIRECTIONS.
That oughta do it.
