Notes from Ravelry... (a new feature)

Today in Ravelry, you may enter a discussion as to what yarn would be the best choice for potato-scrubbing gloves. Or you may give comfort to the knitter who is reluctant to use her 50% acrylic/50% polyester yarn made by Fruit Of The Loom in case it is a valuable and sought-after keepsake. . .



Please be advised that I lerve Ravelry and I think it's the shizzle. But I still find some of the threads amusing.

The discussion boards are my least used function on Rav. That stuff makes me crazy. I hope Miss Acrylic came to terms with the 'yarn' dilemma.

Love Ravelry- kinda love/hate it actually- I seem to go into some kind of time warp whenever I'm there, and when I come out its forever later. So its best not to go to those boards, even for amusement purposes. (just guess what I'll be looking at tomorrow...)

Fruit of the Loom makes yarn?

From acrylic and polyester?

Heh. I once dared someone to start a thread on the random main-board (Remnants?) about which you pulled your toilet paper from the dispenser - over or under? She took my dare and it got several hundred posts. I admit to poking the trolls occasionally.

Is there any way you can update the Black Bunny link in the yarns section in Ravelry? It's still linking to your old etsy site. I don't know if you have control over that bit, or maybe you prefer it that way, but I thought you'd like to know. It's this page:

If I'm in error, please excuse me.

as marilyn would shout: KNIT DWEEBS!

what a waste of keystrokes!

who in their right mind wears gloves to scrub potatoes?

The Bon said...

I can't imagine wearing gloves to scrub potatoes either. Give me a paring knife or a peeler please. And the fruit of the loom yarn thread was certainly precious.

The boards are far and away my most-used feature---but only because I stay far, far, far, far, far, far away from the Main Six. I think they should be eliminated; no good comes from them! I hang out with people who have brains and the ability to write entire sentences---on Big Issues Debate, mostly. Smart people, smart topics, no potatoes or acrylic wank.

I love Ravelry, but some of the discussion topics really make me laugh. I enjoy how worked up people can get over things like yarn and knitting techniques. But, sometimes it's refreshing to focus on that stuff and forget about real problems for a while :)

Yeah, I avoid the Big Six like the plague. I found a group I like and I pretty much hang out there.
