Really?

Knitted skinny pants?

Surely you jest.

Reason #12 is so that I can mock others soundly. I feel that the people who read this blog are Stylish Knitters, in that we knit Things Worth Wearing and also Knitted Items That Are Nice Or At Least Humorous On Purpose (to be known as TWW, and KITANOALHOP, respectively). So when I see something knitted that is not in the KITANOALHOP category (just rolls of your tongue, doesn’t it?), then I feel like my ability to discern Good Knitting from Bad Knitting allows me to mock Bad Knitting with impunity.

(And sometimes I see these things not online, but in fashion magazines, and I think to the knitter, who of course can not hear me, “Knitter,” I say, “Just because you have 3000 yards of super extra jumbo bulky chartreuse wool and size 29 needles, does not mean you should knit a sweater with three arm holes and pockets. Tsk, tsk.”)

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.
