Stiches East! Whatever!

Well . Where do I start. It wasn't as I thought it would be. No great bargains, I didn't expect to save a lot of money. But they had some noro on sale for $7.00 And They had every thing I could get here in New York. Except for the glass knitting needles I did purchase. But I can say that I went and I had a great time with Dani and Mary. But I was a bit ticked with all the yarn snobs there, and some bloggers their that I really don't care for and Im not naming which ones. It seemed that everyone was wearing their knitted items to get validation from other knitters, What ever. Wake up call - We are all knitters some better than others due to years experience, and Imagination. You are not movie star nor rock stars that you need to be noticed, So get over your selves. If I can slap you in the face to wake you up I would. And I really love the fact that the yarn harlot was there signing her book like she was a super star don't get me wrong she is very funny and I did buy her 1st book and laughed my ass off, she has stories like other knitters do. Attention: All other knitters do! It's not like she wrote a pattern book with amazing patterns. She is a great writer. Attention: A great Writer. People are pathetic. I needed no validation that is why I didn't go there with anything I knitted. I know what my capabilities are and I don't need any one to tell be how beautiful my work is and not being true to what they say to me, but only being phony. I have friends to tell me and compliment my work. So now that I got that off my chest, I feel better. But I can't say that I wouldn't go back. I think I will have a better time in Maryland in May. Or upstate for that matter in Oct.
So I had a very tiring weekend but it was very fun, And I still have tomorrow and I have an interview on Monday @ 5pm for a job around the block from my house so now I can walk to work. I just needed extra hours that my boss wasn't giving to us, which is fine im just gald I do have insurance through him. I can really get a job any where. I have my pick of the litter and I am very grateful for that I have many years of experience. And I am very good at hat I do.
But I have to go. Mark has his friends out back and I feel bad Im inside, But I needed a little break from the guy pow wow out there.
Talk soon.

But you have a whole web site with your knitting displayed, so leave everyone who was wearing theres alone - I actually enjoyed seeing what others were doing, to get an idea - why not feel proud of what you do - i guess you do - you have a whole web site - do i care about your halloween bag?

I just want to make sure you know THAT WAS NOT ME!!!! I can't believe someone would post something like that on your blog. How ugly of them.

The show off/validation thing is one of the reasons I don't go to my local guild meetings anymore. But I will admit I love seeing what folks have come up with.

I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention and missed your birthday. I hope it was lovely and that you had a great time.

Your one and only,

To your SP's point, I like seeing other peoples work too, but not when they flaunt it, like they are just waiting for the applause and gushing over their work!
