I love fiber-related blurbs like this one! Here are some more I saw recently. I added them to my Fiber-Related Messages page.
Crocheting: The obsessive use of hooks and yarn to create an array of fuzzy objects in various states of completion. See also “yarn lust.”
Knitting: The obsessive use of needles and yarn to create an array of fuzzy objects in various states of completion. See also “yarn lust.”
Veni, vidi, acubus texui. (I came. I saw. I knitted.)
Then I saw this great dialogue. I am sure many of us have, at one time or another, experienced at least some parts of this!
- Yes, I am knitting. No, I am sure I am not crocheting.
- Yes, sometimes it does require a lot of patience.
- Yes, you could do it. Really! Want to learn?
- Yes, I know you can buy sweaters, socks, etc. for not much money – but what’s the fun in that?
- Yes, I am sure your grandmother did knit for you; that’s nice.
- Well, yes, it does require some concentration – depending on the pattern and the yarn. So could you please stop talking and let me knit now?
