ugh. i hate people like that. it's like saying all football players are dumb, when [at least at my school] you have to be passing 5 out of 8 classes among other things. and the boys who get to play a lot are so good at school.
WHOA, way off topic for a minute.
but anyways, i've been taking my knitting to school for a while now and MOSTLY everyone thinks it's awesome. a dozen people have asked me to teach them [when i refer them to knittinghelp.com] and i'm knitting a trillion things for people.
and teachers love it! they think it's cool how it's "hip" now. who says hip anymore? HAHA.

who, why am i getting so distracted?

yeah...my gramma thinks i'm a better knitter than her. haha, because i can make a bag without a pattern.

That's cool when older people give you compliments.   A few weeks ago people were fawning over my little blue felted bag.  It was kind of embarassing actually.   Embarrassed   

Some friend of a friend asked me to make her one on Star Wars premiere night, but I'm waiting to see if she pays me in wool or she was just talking off the top of her head.  It negated some of the "I don't have time to do THAT"  stuff I've heard so much over the past couple of  years.

I've gotten that too.  First time i told my sister see asked how old i was like she didn't know or something. I think that stereotype is really stupid because my grandma doesn't even know how to knit! So much for that. I knit in public and people just couldn't believe i was knitting. They're just mad becuase i'm cool and they're not Wink

I've had mixed reactions from other people to my knitting... I'm 19 and some think its cool... others (aka my lil sister why thinks everything I do is embarassing) think im crazy.  The other day I was at the hospital with my mom, she has metastatic breast cancer so she has a lot of appointments and tests to go to every month and I usually go with her, and I was knitting in the waiting room while she was having an mri, and these two women (a woman and her mother) came up to me and asked me what I was knitting and were really interested... they had brought their knitting too and we all sat there knitting and talking... i actually felt very normal and accepted.... i dont know anyone who knits so it was really great to have someone to knit with for a change...

my goodness
i totally agree with everyone on this post
ive been knitting ever since i was around 6 and ive seen knitting go in and out of fashion
i think right now its in bc of all the celebrities that have picked it up but in a couple years who knows

knitting is always cool in my book

Ii can say even though I knit, and that I'm a teenager, i even tell people that I'm a grandma. i have even told some to just call me nana anna, although i fool around i would never let anyone hate on my skills but myself! my sister knits as well and when we wear or show off our work the reactions of people are great, and some have even asked to be taught, so therefore i love knitting!

just a little rant

I've noticed the same problem with Instruction books.  The other day, I went to my craft store to find a 'how to crochet' book, and figured I'd look in the knitting section as well, since they're next to each other.  Almost every book was on baby things, afgans, and doilys.  Except for one, which was intened to teach a young (7-10) girl how to knit, with sweater/scarf/poncho patterns in that size.

Someone needs to write a 'hip' how to knit/crochet book.  I know there's Stitch N' Bitch, but what about those little cheap booklets you see in craft stores?  How to knit purses, or something, ANYTHING cooler than afgans!

I saw a commercial for air fresheners today...I think they were Glade, but anyway...in the commercial, they have a little old lady crocheting cozies for air fresheners, and then they show their product which is too cute to cover up with a cozy...and it basically makes fun of crocheters by stereotyping them as little old ladies with nothing better to do than make covers for their "unsightly" air fresheners.  , and that kind of infuriated me because I am EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD and knit/crochet yet am not a loser...my air freshener is right behind me, uncozied, at this very moment.  Well, hey, now I have a crafty idea...just kidding.  Not with my air freshener I don't.

Hey, that reminds me... do you ever see "fake" knitting on TV?  Like during a show when someone's doing it in the background, (or foreground for that matter...) and it's SOOO obvious that they're SOOO not really knitting...

I always make a big deal about it, because... it just looks lame to me!  My fiance tells me to get over it and watch the show, but alas, I never can!    Roll Eyes
