or is it just me?

Am I the only one who calls knitting patterns "recipes" and yarn, notions, etc. "ingredients"?

Why We Knit.

(The title of this post is a very bad take-off on a very bad episode of Angel. Sorry.)

I started knitting for a number of reasons - enough, in fact, to justify a list.
  • Jess, Mindi and Katherine all stayed at my house in December. They were all knitting. I felt SO LEFT OUT.
  • I want to make myself pretty clothes.
  • I can crochet, but pretty much nothing but hats, because I don't know how to do it properly.
  • I used to know how to sew, but I forget now and anyway I don't have a machine.
  • I needed something to do with my hands.
  • I can't afford to buy presents for everyone I love.
  • I already owned a LOT of yarn from the crocheting days (I've gone through many phases with that).
  • I got a knitting book for Christmas.
That really doesn't cover it, as it all sounds rather like I had no active interest or participation in the process. But as far as lists go, it'll do.

V&A - Knitting

"Beautiful girls, you're a lovely picture..."

You know the number in Singing In The Rain, with all the hideous fashions?

This place kinda reminds me of that: girlshop Online boutiques, ladies fashion, womens shoes, designer handbags, handbags

There are a few good ideas, most of which are ruined by some unnecessary embelishment, and everything else is utterly terrifying. And to make matters worse, they've put the items on models with the least flattering body types possible (or vice versa).

This frightens me.

Craft Corner Deathmatch

I've actually seen it once. It's like Martha Stewart in the Trailer Park.

I am becoming obsessed with the idea of teensy clothing.

Miss Universe

Apparently the USA is still represented by the image of Scarlett O'Hara. All the other countries' costumes were discarded by Bjork.
