UHG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE SEWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not there's anything wrong with sewing it's just not my thing. I hate sewing so much that when I'm looking at a new pattern the 1st thing I look for is how much seaming has to be done and then I try to figure out a way around said seaming. I can't stand these people who think they can decide what's "in" and what's not and everyone is just supposed to follow suit She can keep her sewing, I'm not throwing my knitting needles out, they're far too expensive and besides most of them have UFOs on them

Did anyone watch The Today Show today?

Did you see the part about the bacterial infection (I can't remember the name of it)? But it is spreading all over the place. That is scary.

I might be wrong.. but I thought when she was on The View she was trying to learn to knit.. cause Elizabeth knits and they made a few comments.. she wasn't really catching on.. which knitting is easy to do so maybe thats why she made the comment... she was was mad cause she couldn't be cool like us...

I think that's a great idea. I'm sending my email right now. Hope as many of y'all as feel it appropriate wil do the same thing.

And after what she said yesterday?? He must have been thinking, "Uh, I guess you didn't like what I got you???"

I sew and Knit, but I much prefer Knitting. And anyone who uses a phrase out of Buffy the Vampire slayer "Ugg, that jacket is sooooo five minutes ago" is not the bastion of what is "hip and in".

I used to sew clothing and will never make another garment again. But I did just take up quilting which is pretty cool. I knit and crochet and barring some sort of disaster like no more yarn (but I have a stash to last a lifetime so I don't think I would ever have that problem) I will never put down my needles and hooks.

That's fine if she doesn't want to knit and if she wants to feel better about it by declaring it "out". That just leaves more yarn for me!

Well I have been sewing for 30+ years and knitting took up knitting only 3 years ago. I enjoy both but knitting is much more portable and relaxing. Isn't there some kind of saying that says fads come around ever 20 years or so! I will keep doing both no matter what Meredith says!! xxx
