I was looking through the new July issue of Glamour magazine and came across a little section with reader quotes entitled, "The bad habit I won't quit" (p. 107)

From one Chicago woman:


Implying that knitting is worse than chewing on the insides of her cheeks... ewww.  I'm sure she was trying to be funny but still...

Ever since I was laughed at for days on end after applying a magazine-suggested mixture of milk and lime juice to my face (apparently, such a mixture results in cheese, thus the endless rounds of laughter I had to endure from my know-it-all mother), I've decided never to take anything written in magazines seriously again.

So if a magazine tells you knitting sucks, you better believe it doesn't.

Ah, don't you just love humans who speak without ever bothering to think?

She was probably convinced that people would find her hilarious...she just comes off as brainless.

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

Maybe she means "nobody wants that" as in she used to be a knitter, and she went crazy with it and everyone got really awful sweaters and had to endure her knitting talks.

She's also probably not the one who put the "nobody" instead of "nobody".

I personally wouldn't like a group of crafting ladies bitching about an opinion of mine online.

I like how knitting ranks up there with drinking and smoking. Very witty. I guess I'll have to become a chronic smoker and an alchoholic now. (i do chew the insides of my cheeks... )

She talked to the magazine.  She wanted people to pay attention to her opinion.  We are in no way required to agree with her...we have opinions, too.
