Gift for grandma?? NO WAY it's for me.......
I thought this was funny..........

I've been thinking about buying interchangeable needles. I almost bought "Boye needlemaster 200" at Michael's since I had a 50% coupon. But before I did, I read alot of reviews from here.

I then checked on-line on Amazon and

I found this on

Needlemaster 200 Zippered Knitting Needle Kit
Rating 4.3 | 29 reviews | Write a review
Today $42.45
Item #: 11436382 Very High Sellout Risk
Give your grandma a gift she'll love and use with this zippered knitting needle kit. This convenient kit is a must-have for knitters, as it features knitting needles for different types of cables, as well as a handy needlework kit for your designs....more

Why do people think that only grandmas knit?

Anyways, after reading many of the review here, I decided against Boye needles.
I will need save up for "Denise interchangeables" since there's no way I can afford anything else. :(

It's bad enough when someone off the street who's not very up on trends and fashions makes a comment about only grandmothers knitting, but it's really bad when you have a company (who SHOULD be up to date on trends and fashions) make this kind of comment.

Amusing in some ways, yes, and kinda sad, too.

Gah! What's up with these people?

My mother is a lot like that, actually. I have told her many times that I would be willing to teach her to knit. She always says, "I'll learn when I'm old."

My mother is way more hip than I am. One day, I went to her house, and she was sitting there watching a television show of current musicians with very sexy dance routines. Some of that stuff is VERY suggestive, you know? I felt kinda uncomfortable being in the same room with my Mom as she watched it.

So, maybe I am "old-fashioned".
