If you are a crocheter and a World War II soldier, it is mission-critical to arm yourself with effective gear, including crochet hooks, threading needles, and grenades.
I made these grenades from rows of popcorn stitches and double crochet stitches, with increasing single crochet stitches between each row.
These friendlier grenades are in love. Aren't they cute? (^_^)
Well, they may seem cute to Civvies, but explosives are no laughing matter. And as a make-believe soldier who watched Tropic Thunder and bought a Canadian military uniform from an army surplus store, I should know.
War is hell.
Now, I admit to lacking experience with explosives. You could even say I'm "green" around grenades. But as you'll see in this video from my war correspondent girlfriend, I know enough to pull the grenade's safety pin:
After that shell-shocking experience, I salute the real-life soldiers up here in Canada. Hoorah!
