Why I knit, Reason #16

I knit because it keeps me from getting too far into my other obsessions, which, while pretty darn cool, do not produce anything of substance aside from intense irritation on the part of my friends and family.

It is hard to knit while reading subtitles.

This is why books on tape and long car trips are great things. Both things at once! I have turned the heel on the second sock of a pair, making these socks my fastest so far. It is possible to knit something in under a month (the hat took a little over two weeks)! Just think… if I really worked on a sweater diligently, I could potentially wear it before it gets warm and then cold again.

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.
