In that I tweeted this, and now I’m posting it to my blog:
I should remind myself in the future that if I watch these things, I will cry, and if I do so at work, I will embarrass myself (huh… embarrass has two “r”s in it; I have been spelling it wrong always).
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.
Well, really it's a mob of one, but you get the idea. I'm just me, in Hotlanta, but through me there are many others (yes, we are numerous), and we have teh pointy sticks (fear them), and besides that, we make pretty things. Mostly.
love this! i’m going to try and stop by the office late in the day tomorrow — hopefully you won’t be too busy and we can catch up!
I will be here and un-busy, hopefully! Can’t wait to see you…
I was sent this today and have been cracking up!
I leaked too. I just kept thinking how lucky this couple was to be starting their life with such a supportive group of friends.
And I loved how completely un-self-conscious they all were. I think it’s a good sign for the future of the relationship…
