Today's "Today Show"
Did anyone see this this morning? Meredith said that knitting was old hat-not her exact words, but the meaning is the same. apparently sewing is the new rage. How many of us are tossing away our needles so we can be "IN?"

Sewing, schmewing. Bah. Not for me. Give me yarn! More yarn! Must knit! xxx

I started sewing when I was 10. I don't care if I ever see the sewing machine again thankyouverymuch! Way too fiddly! :teehee:

i saw this too, and i was ticked! i hate that things have to be "in" to be considered worth our time!

Me too--what was that?? :teehee: Silly Meredith.

I hate hearing things like that too. Not dissing sewing, but you can't lug your machine with ya like you can your yarn.
I just worry about what if the yarn store hear ever closed? It was here years before knitting took on it's resurgence. I like to see things exist before the world knows about it and stick around when the world moves to the next big thing. :happydance:

Her exact words were "Knitting is sooooo five minutes ago!"

I was in the car on my way to work when I heard it and if it wouldn't have made me go speeding into the car in front of me i would have :tap:

Somebody should write to her. The video is on the Today show site...
Why do people do that? Say things like "Breathing! It's on the rise! Catch the breeze before it passes!"
