I also sew my fingers to work sometimes. i have limited feeling in them so at times I can't feel where the needle is... until I look down and lo and behold, i have fabric sewn to my finger.

eegad! all sounds horrid!
i do tend to sew my clothes,sofa,bed,cushions,homework,bags etc all into projects.

i remeber once at school i leant too close to the machine and...


lo and behold, my hair was attatched to my cushion cover!
someone asked if they should get help but i hissed at them not to cos miss brown(textiles teacher) would be a bit wierded out... i just pulled it out

ditto when i got sellotape in my hair in technology.

and in food tech i melted a tray

and i have sooooo many splinters from woodwork!

I have really long hair, down to my hips, and sometimes when I am engrossed in my knitting, I start knitting in some of my hair without even realizing it. Usually it's just a few strands, and most of the time its just loose strands that were sticking out, but it's always a pain to pull out all the hairs. Sometimes, it gets so tangled up I have to frog some of my work to get the hair out. I thought I was just weird, but I'm glad to know I'm not alone.

I've sewn, knitted, and accidentally burned my hair.
I got tired of it so I chopped it all off. I really didn't
like it, so now I'm considering dreads. If I manage to
work those into a project I'll know I'm hopeless.

You think it's funny that I knit?
Yes, say that the the person
with the pointy needles.

I have waist-length red hair that gets crocheted into everything I do. I stopped caring a long time ago. So what if my hair gets in? Nobody is going to really notice. Heck, I don't notice most of the time, and I'm way more critical of my own work than anyone else...

That "tradition" of crafting in a strand of hair just sounds like women back then got frustrated with trying to keep their long hair out of their work, and just gave up and created this story to make it seem like it was done on purpose... crafty women are, well, crafty.

That's hilarious and your probably dead on. LOL..My hair gets everywhere..In the blankets I crochet and the quilts I make. Atleast the quilts its easy to lint roll them off...for the most part..My husband is constantly pulling my hair out of his stubble..LOL..I told him if he'd shave it, it wouldn't collect my hair.

I've never sewn my hair into anything, but I have MORE THAN ONCE sewed a piece I was handstitching to my skirt. I've sometimes done this for a whole lot of stitches before noticing...

[laughs] I've considered that before now! Certainly it would be lovely and soft...
