Friends & neighbors,
in my long experience in knitting, crocheting, etc., there are a few words that almost always signal a yarn crime has taken place and another will take place if you follow this pattern or whatever to make that thing. I’m sharing my experience with you, gentle readers (all 5 of you), as a kind of public service. I think that a certain format might be useful. With a nod of thanks to Jeff Foxworthy, here goes!
Try saying this phrase out loud and fill in the blank with each word below.
“When you see the word ‘______’, you might commit a yarn crime.”
Got it? OK. And I would love for folks to give me some funny captions in the comments.
“So, you think that there’s a real market for D.I.Y. jewelry that looks like cat entrails huh?
If you are:
- not currently serving as a cheerleader
- not going to a fancy dress party
- not ‘pharmaceutically enhanced’
- are potty trained
- and can read
then pom poms are NOT for you.
This is especially true if the words ‘easy’ or ‘beginner’ or ‘bulky’
appear anywhere in the description.
If you have to tell people the owl is cute…it ISN’T.
….. and sometimes just the word ‘crochet’ can be enough.
There are those that go beyond this little word thing. I give you these as proof:
I mean this snake sock is ****beautifully made****….but WHY?!?!?!
OK, back to your life now. :o)
