I have failed you… :/
“As long as there has been knitting there have been battles about it. There are self-declared “yarn snobs,” who frown on using anything but natural fibers; “gauge snobs”, who wouldn’t be caught dead with chunky yarn; and “experience snobs”, who claim you can’t declare yourself a real knitter until you abandon novelty yarns. The truth is that the knitting world is a tiny metaphor for the real world. It takes all kinds.
I will not allow myself to feel bad if someone disapproves of my knitting. I will also resist the urge to stuff his mailbox full of chunky acrylic fun fur at 3:00 am.”
Less ugly men’s knits. Mostly stuff that doesn’t look like my grandfather wore it after the war. I want patterns as gorgeous as the women’s! Hell, just help me convert a woman’s pattern to fit my body.
kalany replied to your post “What kinds of features would you put in a knitting and/or crochet magazine?”A section on the science&engineering of knitting, with academically formatted papers peer reviewed by fellow scientist-knitters and an extensive comments & responses subsection.
Looking at you interweave.
