Tell me, please, am I the ONLY one? Do I attract the weirdos? Am I alone in this little adventure? Or is this common, am I part of a group, am I whining about something as common as traffic and rising gas prices?
WHY do people attack me about my knitting? WHY do they have to talk about all the negative things that, in their minds, are attached to the art? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?!?!?!?
Remember me talking about the randomness at work? The talk of deformed hands and negative consequences of knitting? It’s happening again! But not at work.
A certain someone in my family who shall remain nameless but will, should they read this, know exactly who they are and probably raise hell for my writing about it, is standing in my bedroom while I’m proudly showing off my first pair of socks.
“Oh they’re cute. But you know… you’ll probably end up with carpal tunnel in your hands from doing that.”
What the *BEEP*?!? Why the *BEEP* would you tell someone that *BEEPING* knitting a *BEEPING* pair of *BEEPING* socks will give you *BEEPING* carpal tunnel syndrome!?!?!?!?!? Of all the *BEEPING* *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* *BEEP* things to say to someone!
So tell me… am I the only one?
