I had a vintage (maybe?.got it at a thrift shop. I'mma say it was vintage for moar hip points) that proudly proclaimed I was a gentleman named Dick. I would wear it over a tee shirt with a picture of the Holy Mary that just said "anal doesn't count". This was at 16? Old enough to spend my own money on stupid… » 1/22/15 9:31pm Thursday 9:31pm

I very deeply love my Clover straight needles. They are fantastic, affordable bamboo and I have TONS of those bastards. I cannot stand my Clover circulars. They (imho- and I am a new knitter) have shit cords. Every pair of clover circs I have have memory like a bitter elephant. Even after hit water dips. I do not like… » 1/20/15 9:26pm Tuesday 9:26pm

Ok- these people are objectively terrible. But; seriously you guys? What are you spending your money on? Why don't you have a retirement fund? What is wrong with you? What are you eating that it costs two thousand dollars a month? » 1/18/15 9:25am 1/18/15 9:25am

I'm sick of their sizing being bullshit. I have boobs, but I'm not some sort of ultra buxom beauty. Why do I need a 26 in shirts/ jackets to close over my sweater puppies, but in pants i'm still an 18/20. WTF Lane Bryant? W. T. F? » 1/17/15 9:44pm 1/17/15 9:44pm

I have acquired skills pretty quickly, I can lace and cable and increase and decrease and knit in the round on circulars and close up hats on DPNs (but not start shit on DPNs, it goes weird for me- another… » 1/15/15 8:19pm 1/15/15 8:19pm

I just feel so, so sad for this woman (girl?) Reading the article, the whole thing with the fifth grade boyfriend/cheating/pregnancy/burned down cigarette house story? And how controlling she felt her mother was? And the town full of heroin kids; and the missing a distant stepfather when he and her mother took a break… » 1/15/15 5:46pm 1/15/15 5:46pm

OT; I love John Barrowman and he is just insanely beautiful and every time people talk about how NPH and David Burtka are the most attractive famous gay couple I side eye because they clearly have never seen John Barrowman and Scott Gill. » 1/15/15 11:32am 1/15/15 11:32am

Can I get all nerdy up in here? I'm a member of the Ravelry Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup group, and I'm finishing a Miss Marple Scarf for a class (Care of Magical Creatures) I'm about to cast on a Honey cowl in Fishermen's Wool (but I'm not loving the color- it's brown heather. I'm wondering if I can… » 1/14/15 1:46pm 1/14/15 1:46pm
