“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.

I never really checked a needle out until they got all casual, rough and rugged. It’s a good look. Reminds me of someone I know…hmm…it will come to me…

Awe, damn. One third of the way through 30 drawings for 30 days. I know it’s easy to start panicking. So now that you are in a state of panic, you’re flustered, and wondering, “what should I do with this violent pent up energy?”, go over to Hooktopia and join the ranks of some very fine hookers indeed!

Statistics show that 99% of all relationships end due to the couples costume conundrum. Sad, but devastatingly true.

Another lone hooker hit for DA JAMZ! page. I know you needles like bonding and what not, but I weild a rattan/wicker/shabby chic French racket with pure selfish only child rage. The kind of rage that I back with music from the Police. Don’t make me bust out my graduation gown or my angel wings. Exactly. Back. Up.

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.
