to sew > to knit

lavorare a maglia (o a ferri)
to knit together = unire (non vuole dire due persone che sedono insieme, i voi due lavorare a maglia!!!)
to knit together (broken bones) = saldarsi
to knit together (come pesone) = andare d'accordo

I would like to suggest/ propose a little game that will help us with our English vocabulary. What you do is add or take away a letter or two or replace it with another.

For Example:

RIGHT becomes BRIGHT (luminoso)

Thanks to Artrella for this idea.

I'll begin...

Bright > Fight

fight (quarrel) nm litigio (lotta)
fight (conflict) nm conflitto
fight (struggle) nf lotta (combattimento)
fight (battle) nf battaglia
fight (combat) v combattere
fight (quarrel) v litigare
fight (resist) v resistere (combattere)
Non abbiamo perso la strada?

knit >>> knight

s. 1. cavaliere 2.(scacchi) cavallo
