I only got 8 questions wrong. Jumping With Joy Or should that be 8 answers? Maybe there were 8 wrong questions and if they'd been the right questions, I'd have got the answers right.

Perhaps they aught to dumb down the questions so that everybody gets them right and then goes on to University to study some useless course on knitting. Very Happy

I already learned knitting nearly 70 years ago. I knitted a maroon scarf which my mum said was very nice even though it was only four stitches wide. Cool
