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?"

NOT I

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.

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!"
