Knitted Curtains?

Come on.



I got this via email today from KnitPicks.

"Add a feminine touch to your kitchen with this lovely lacy curtain."

Lovely?

Feminine touch?

How desperate are we that we're making our kitchens feminine and knitting our own curtains??

Even Scarlet O'Hara would think this was retarded. Emails like this give knitters a bad name everywhere.

If you get to this point, it's time for a new hobby.

I'm not even going to mention the tea cozy also promoted in the email...

I was getting a sneaking suspicion you had fallen off the face of the earth. Now I know you had just been busy knitting curtains...this post is clearly a cover-up. Don't lie; I know you like them!

I am sort of glad when I see stuff like that that I haven't graduated from the scarf and hat knitting of a novice knitter!!!

WOW, you ARE alive. Phewww, thank goodness!

Yes, knitted curtains are ridiculous. Knitted PANTS, however, are totally appropriate.

I was recently flipping through a knitting magazine and there was a feature on a woman who knitted her own wedding dress. Um, wow.

All I can really say is AMEN, sista.

I haven't talked to you in forever and you still, as always, continue to make me laugh out loud!
