The Underground Struggle Against Nature

For far too long we have been the subjects of a tyrannically master namely natural wool yarn and it henchman hand washing. Nature in general is a bad thing. Beside the rashes illness and killer animals that roam the country side at wil,l it's products are hard to deal with.

The chemical companies of America have done a fine job making things out of oil. Not only are they easier to wash they come in a wide array of colors not found in nature. I ask you how can you embarrass nieces and nephews if you cannot make hats in neon lime green? Soft Earth tones are Unamerican. It is our duty as Americans to be loud and subject the world to our every whim. Because we are right and everyone else on the planet is wrong. And you simply cannot knit this in Earth Tones.

Remember Acrylic is your Friend


PS Blogger is not letting me put up pictures. I will add a cute picture of my cat when I can. And by the way Zoltan , my cat, has swore off natural things and exclusively eats Velveta to undermine the Nature Conspiracy.

I have been looking over the knitting Blogs and decided to start one of my own. It looks as if there are two things that you need for a knitting blog. The first is pictures of projects in various stages of done and pictures of a cute pet.

I am working on two baby blankets, some socks, and a knitting bag. The pink baby blanket is for the maintance guy at work, Ray, or well his grand daughter. The blue one is for my ministers the Captains Banks, well for their child. The socks and knitting bag are for me. I will put in some pictures when I get them.

About a month ago I started a knitting group on the South Side of Pittsburgh at the Bee Hive. It starts at 7:00 PM every Monday if you are interested in attending. We have a had a steady group of four or five people. Everyone is very friendly and they are willing to share their knowledge. I do not have their permission write about them so I will respect their privacy unless they say I can violate it.

When blogger lets me put up pictures I have a nice one of the pink blanket that is now finished. I also have a cat and dog that are handsome little animals to fufill the second requirement of a knitting blog. If any clowns from the R.C.C. read this it is me and you know where to email me.

This blog will be a weekly thing and I hope it will be witty and entertaining. Thank you for reading my ramble.
