1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting in public-- the positive side on: August 25, 2005 08:21:29 AM
Girls always smile and sometimes make eyes at me when I knit in public. The other threads were not about the downsides of knitting in public, but about the downsides of knitting in certain situations. I've been back in Boston for a week and I've been knitting on the T almost every day.

Which brings me to another thing: Why is it so "novel" for a man to knit? People are so surprised when they see me knit or when I walk into a new yarn store. I mean, women always express interest in teaching their boyfriends, but male knitters are treated so condescendingly.

Why is it so horrible to be overly considerate? Why is that such a horrible thing for people to do?

Having played double bass in an orchestra, I would not think that it was a good idea. But then again I used to flirt with the trombonist, a cute Japanese girl. But let's put it this way: the trumpet section has two reputations A) the section that pays the least attention and B) the most annoying section. Do you really want to be like a trumpet player?
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: itching in a BAD place on: August 09, 2005 11:27:30 PM
Thank god that somebody mentioned Gold Bond powder. I use it for everything: fatman chubrub, any kind of rash, itchy feet, and yes, the occasional itchy butt.

You could use it on your underpants, but I recommend (and this sounds gross [and it is gross]) putting some on your hand and putting your...crack area. Possibly while bending over. Be liberal. I don't know if having powder like that flying around in your drawers would have any kind of...erm....vaginal implications, but the stuff works wonders and has a pleasant warm sensation.

Knitting them would be pretty crazy, I think. I would either just sew felt (which was probably what was done) or you could maybe have some fun needle felting them some how.

One thing that was mentioned here by the anti-knitting in class side and never acknowledged is that one's knitting affects more than just the professor. Would you be willing to stop if it made somebody sitting next to you or even a couple of rows down uncomfortable or distracted? Even wood needles make some clicky noise. If somebody asked you to stop, or even just looked at you uncomfortably a bunch of times, would you be considerate? There's anywhere between 20 and 500 kids in a classroom depending on the school you go to and which class. Which ones are you making the class harder for?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do w/ Rowan 4 Ply Cotton?? on: August 07, 2005 10:01:18 AM
I had these ladies come into work wearing cotton crocheted hats. They loved them because they were cute but breatheable enough to wear year round. I bought some nice cotton yarn and knitted a hat up for my g/f. She loves it!

My dogs will chew through anything with one exception. Real bones! If you go to the butcher section at your local supermarket, you can often purchase these bigass bones. The dogs love the marrow, and continue to chew the bones for MONTHS at a time. I've never seen them even make a significant dent in one. I'm not talkiing about little pot roast bones, but the big leg bones from the cow. Your dog will love you forever (not that he doesn't already).
