Why I Knit, #8

Because with knitting, you can be a grandmother and be a knitter. You can be pierced and be a knitter. You can be a man, or in middle school, or German, or Pagan, or Catholic, or a chicken farmer, or a geneticist and still you’re a knitter.

And do you know the best part? You can come to knitting group once a week and you get along with all these people, because you’re a knitter. It is the great equalizer (and although I don’t think it could create world peace, it could come pretty close, unless you post about it on a Ravelry forum).

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
