Fear and Loathing in the Yarn Stash

What is Gonzo Knitting?

It is knitting in search of a little freakin' inner peace.
It is trying to knit with one hand while holding a cocktail in the other.
It is trying to ignore whatever strange things might be afoot in your yarn stash.
It is realizing that no matter how carefully you check your gage, sometimes the laws of physics conspire against you, and your carefully planned sweater becomes a phone booth cozy.

To paraphrase HST, "When the going gets weird, the weird cast on."
