During some bingy YouTube-watching, I came across a series of videos for this interesting pattern called the Catherine Wheel stitch. It is a very pretty pattern, in the hands of someone who knows what she is doing, which I do not. As I was watching videos of very pleasant instructors very pleasantly talking about the wheels of the wagon and the balance of the stitches, I wondered over and over again, ‘Are we speaking in code here? Did no one think to look up the meaning of the Catherine Wheel?

You're thinking the Funny Thoughts. I can tell.

  1. Catherine Wheels are also descriptive of a a certain kind of fireworks. So maybe think of the fireworks instead of the torture method?
