jumping right in this time:
1. thanks for the comments to last week's post about the USOC brouhaha. if you haven't been paying attention, the USOC apologized for dissing the knitters and many still aren't happy. whatever. anyway, it's weird because i don't see myself as a confrontational person but maybe i am and i just don't see it in me. or rather i am confrontational but sometimes it makes me uncomfortable. although it was an easy post to write, it was not an easy post to publish. i was sure i'd get poked by a pitchfork or two. heh. thank you for not poking me here.
2. i promise, this is the last thing i'm going to say about the issue. although the ravelympics is not necessarily knitting specific (there are plenty of crocheters that participate) this issue did become a knitters' issue and that's fine. HOWEVER, i find it ironic that there are as shit load of knitters out there that DO NOT RESPECT the crochet. so you know, the hypocrisy, it burns.
3. if you are new to the blog, i crochet.
this is a new thing that's been sitting in my head for a few weeks now. if it works out the way i hope it does, i'll write it up as a pattern.
4. i broke my spending moratorium to get this adorable crochet book (ok i "bought" it with points so i didn't really spend any money). i'm running out of time this morning, so i'll write up a review in the next couple of days.
