“Eats a knit eat crochet world”
This has been a looooong time coming and all the thanks goes out to Lindsey Keasler. She had emailed and I noticed this phrase pop up in her writing and instantly wrote it for post it on my wall (and asked Lindsey if I could do I doodle of it). Thanks for the inspiration and a chance to dust off the old realism skillz.
And to all those emails about my doodles, yes, I can actually draw.

Needles ain’t no joke when it comes to sticking together tighter than J-Lo’s jeans. If Kate had be this determined she could have thawed out Leo and ran around pointlessly for 10 more hours of Hollywood movie gold. I guess we lucked out.

In hooker news, tunisian crochet has been the choice of buzz words this week. You can learn about this knit-equse not knitting, kind of like but sorta not really, mixed offspring technique here, but warning: you will probably need to explain yourself amongst skeptical hooker coherts. Read and know your craft peoples. Keep your hesitants as bay, I’ve checked ahead, it’s legit, but those double hooks are freaky though.

Today, I vent, so if you choose to read some non-whining, go somwhere else. If you tend to be bitter or that friend who instigates and encourages anger, read on and comment too. I really believe in crochet, I do. I have lots of hobbies and I love craft but never have I met a people who are so second place. I am talking to you fellow hooker. Again and again and yes, you guessed it, today while at the craft store I shop at almost every day, someone looks over,
“Oh, my! So much yarn! What are you making?”
“A monster. One with big feet I think. Really excited.”
“I’ve always wanted to learn to knit!”
“Oh, I don’t knit. I crochet.”
“It uses a hook instead of knitting needles to craft yarn into all sorts of things.”
“I’ve never heard of that. Could you teach someone to knit?”
“I don’t knit.”
“Oh not at all. Okay. Do they have those hooks here?”
“Yes. Crochet hooks are at all the craft stores. They are right over there.”
“Oh wow, very interesting. Crochet.”
“You should try it. I learned from YouTube.”
“I really want to learn to knit first I think. When are you going to learn knitting?”
[Insert silence here.]
“Here have a button. It’s a hooker thing.”
Maybe I am over reacting just because I have had that conversation about 1,000 times. No I don’t have any knitting plans and that is just fine. I apologize on behalf of all the blank stares you have gotten and all the ones you will receive, but stay strong. We are all crafted equally. One day they will know, one day they will all know.
