Sign Me Up

Posted on Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Maybe you have seen the signs around town -Charlotte Bergmann Can Win. It is so great to see Republican political campaigns catch up with their overall commitment to mediocrity.  Charlotte Bergmann Can Win is absolutely the least they can say about her. It’s non-committal, vague, and in no way speaks to her values, morals, experience or person. [...]

This Pit is Bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Posted on Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Kirk Cameron and his friend Ray Comfort “proved” the creationist theory with a banana here. If a banana proves creation, then what does another fruit prove? Behold the peach. If you look at it, you’ll notice it’s round and soft. It has a clever little cleft that makes it look vaguely like a human butt from some [...]

I’m a Scrappy Broad

Posted on Thursday, August 26th, 2010

This week I am getting close to finishing a blanket. Not usually my cup of tea, but this one is magnificent. There are 2 reasons why. 1. I love scrap yarn projects. Previously I did rugs. I feel like the noble green knitter using the discarded trash of consumer thirsty beasts. Also, I am cheap [...]

Teach Me, Tiger

Posted on Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Recently on the MKM Facebook page, I asked for questions from non-knitters. What do you guys want to know? Ja’Lyn asked how long it takes to learn to knit. What an incredibly complicated question. Easy answer: somewhere between one day and never. I first attempted knitting in the winter of 2003. I bought a book called [...]

Confessions of an Undereducated Scholar

Posted on Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Someone shared this with me today and it really got me to thinking. I have long struggled with education. I love to learn. I was a straight A student all the way through school. I wasn’t valedictorian and frankly, I wasn’t in the running. (Turns out there are a LOT of interesting things to do when you are [...]

Knitted Gifts or I’m Just Not That Into You

Posted on Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Some people knit only one thing. I know sock knitters who are vigilant. They make socks like it’s their job. I’m a wanderer. I have made sweaters, toys, shoes, whatever. Once a made a tree full of the Old Ones for Cthulumas. I like a challenge. I have knit a lot of gifts too, but I [...]

Who Gives A Knit

Posted on Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Knitting is all the rage. Stupid little hipsters in their stupid little houses are knitting stupid little scarves as we speak. They are writing books about knitting, using phrases like “stitch and bitch” or “not your mothers knitting”. Gross. It is your mother’s knitting. For that matter, it’s yourgreat-great-great-great grandmother’s knitting. Get over yourself. I hate to dissolve the magical [...]
