Sounds like she needs to learn to knit Kevlar sweaters.

If she was knitting a cat sweater, see if the cat had an alibi.

♫ wooly bully !

Wounded by Knitting opened for NWA at GangFest '89.

What was she knitting? If this woman is like Ralphie's aunt in "A Christmas Story," the hit is totally justified.

If the shooter made her drop a stitch his days are numbered.
This is exactly why I always keep a pair of size 19 knitting needles next to me when I'm knitting. They're great for large projects but work even better as weapons.

Maybe she was knitting the b-ballers new uniforms and someone--???---didn't like the colors.

Never take a knitting needle to a gunfight.

Obviously a rival knitting gang.

It probably wasn't basketball players. These days, they usually dunk instead of shoot.
