I’m still a little flattened here – I did indeed get so sick, and so did enough people that at moments this Christmas, the whole thing reminded me of the voyage of the damned. It was indeed a holiday where a lot went wrong, but instead of whinging about that (and oh, there is plenty) instead I give you a few moments where things went very right.

“...the number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can't tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.

"...knitters just can't watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can't wait in line, knitters just can't sit waiting at the doctor's office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways.”
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

“100 years ago, buying something you could make was considered wasteful; now making something you could buy is considered wasteful. I am not convinced this is a step in the right direction.”
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, All Wound Up: The Yarn Harlot Writes for a Spin

“ I will continue to freak out my children by knitting in public. It's good for them.”
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much
