In anticipation of getting my invitation to Ravelry, I have created my Flickr account and will spend the next few days uploading some pictures. My Flickr name is Debbi62 which I hope I will be able to use on Ravelry as well.
Work is going well, the commute is not as bad as I had expected, of course I leave at 6:30 every day but that is ok, my body is adjusting.
Yesterday I had an interesting comment on my post about Knitters vs People who Knit. Now those of you who know me, know that I am not a snob, I do not only work with natural fibers, knit with handmade needles, or live a life within a box..... Apparently someone that read my blog post took offense and posted on their Myspace account. Several people chimed in giving their opinions, most blasting me for what they felt was snobbery, elitism, and plain rudeness. Now I know that EVERYONE is entitled to their own opinion, for goodness sake that is what started this in the first place, but please people, give me a break. I suppose though I should be glad that it started some kind of dialog even if it is sooooooooooooo left of center as to be hanging off the edge of the world. As a friend commented to me "Just remember if you are interested in dyeing yarn for money, all publicity is good publicity". As for the person that I apparently offended, I am glad to see that you decided that you might go back and re-read the post, and look at the book by the Yarn Harlot. If any of you lurkers would like to look at the MySpace forum here is the link MySpace/Knitter VS People who Knit. Please feel free to leave a comment there if you already have a my space account, but PLEASE do not do it to avenge me. I am ok with all of the discussion that has gone on about this..... in fact I am kinda amused. Who would have thought that lil ole me would cause a bit of a stir......
Have a great night, I am going to wind some yarn.
