Accidental Yarn Purchase Inspires Hilarious Pun-Filled Twitter Thread

Let's hear it for happy accidents. Twitter user Dan Sheehan ordered what he thought was a sweater à la Chris Evans in Knives Out, and instead received all the materials required to actually knit it himself. He took to the website to share the amusing anecdote, and his followers came through with loads of puns and jokes that turned this mistake into a hilarious Twitter thread that we're glad we didn't miss it.
