I could care less what people think. I knit. Am enjoying it, and wouldn't stop knitting, no matter what sort of raised eyebrows I get directed at me.
What I am seeing, is a real feeling that knitting, is not a GrannySquare thing anymore, (although I doo soo badly want to make a Granny Square Afgan. And thanks to the person that posted the thread about the left over sock afgan idea! )
The blogs out there are incredible. Artful, real. The information on knitting on the web, and especially here is amazing. People are creating some great/awesome/cool things, and I am having a wonderful time learning.
I guess, the reason I posted this question is that I wondered if anyone felt a sort of prejudice (for want of a better word) towards your knitting, and how you felt about it.
I make socks and I'm proud of it.
