No. That wasn't a suggestion. It IS one of the functions of the moderators. Since it is very rare that we have this kind of problem, it does not add that much time to the job.

I experienced a rather nasty exchange a long time back, and the mods asked that we let them mediate the dispute, since that is one reason for having mods.

Mods Rock!!!!

Hi all putting on the mod hat here. This is a situation where us mods would be very happy to help. It is better for everyones feelings to take a problem to the person through pm or by using one of the lovely (and handsome- no need to tell Jeremy that he is lovely ) mods to mediate. As was stated it really is our job to do this so you won't be bothering us. So rather than continuing with this thread and possibly cause more hurt feelings or frustration lets take it to pm. Also if the two ladies originally involved in this still need to talk to someone please feel free to message a mod. We are here to help.

Yep, emailed "mod" yesterday when the situation first occurred...if you check back you will see that...also, in my own defense (FOR THE FINAL TIME) To answer some previous questions: No, I am not a new member, if you look back at my posts, you will find me swapping, asking for vacation advice, advice on how to accept the fact that my "crafting teacher" was nearing the end of her life and in hospice, accepting a "prayer shawl" from another member of KHF,selling thru the forum as well as buying. You will also find posts where I "threw in the needles" because of my personal loss...but decided to pick them back up and keep trying...Yes, yesterday I checked out Knitty Chicks site and posted my stuff there...again, that was yesterday. Like I posted, the "smilies" say it all. So question my credibility, question my loyalty to this site but keep in mind it's my choice to be here. Thanks to all

Thanks! My dad gave me a pillow last Christmas that said something like that and I thought "how appropriate".

I snicker everytime I see it. I've knitted everything with cat hair stuck in it.

Right now we are staying with my parents (just until Aug. 13th though) and between me and my mom we have 4 cats. Two of them are long-haired. Fun.

Between the 4 cats and the needle-eating, project-ripping German Shepard, it's pretty amazing that I ever actually turn out a usable FO.

Ack.. 4 cats! We have two and that's enough. One of them will be moving with my daughter in a month or two though. The other one is 16 as of yesterday. I love cats, but elderly cats are a pain in the patoot! At least my dog ignores my knitting.
