- I'm a slightly mad pagan trucker with an unhealthy obsession with yarn.
One of my Twitter friends vanillalotushop was looking for people to review her stitch markers & I of course volunteered. And I must say her work is absolutely beautiful. I received 5 iridescent blue markers. I would post a pic BUT someone left her camera at home. The wire wrapping is top notch, nice and smooth so no snags on your work. I highly recommend stopping by and getting some. So stop on by Vanillalotus's Shop and tell Priscilla hello & pick up a few for your collection. And at $7 for a set of 5 they would make great last minute gift ideas for the crocheter or knitter in your life.
Then she started in on the fact that I am a crocheter and not a knitter. While I admit that most of my fiber manipulating skills are in crocheting, I am capable of knitting. Albeit at a very basic level.
Why in this day and age should I have to stand up and verbally bitch slap someone just to defend crochet and my choice to use acrylic yarn?? When are people going to learn to just keep their fat traps shut because no one really gives two shits about what they think anyway?? People just totally piss me off sometimes.
I'm sure the 2 people that read my ramblings will probably have their worst fears confirmed after reading this and finding out that I have named my blackberry. Yes it's true, I'm mental. But for those of you that don't get it probably never will, but that's OK, I'll still be your friend. ;)
I swear every time I pick up this yarn I keep expecting it to smell like grape pop. But alas, it only smells like wool.
Also in the works, I have an Tunisian lace afghan made with Bernat Pink Camo & a green felted messenger bag for my nieces. And I also have a scarf yet to be made. I think I need a couple more hands, or more free time.
But on a positive side I did get the truck straightened up and got started on a cozy for my new laptop. The christmas crochet gifts are still no closer to completion. But I still have a month and a half. I better start shaking that crochet hook.
