Today's Ravelry moment

Explore the bewitching world of handknit fem pro. (Please: can we keep the comments free of anything earnest? I'm in a mood.)

Sitting here imagining a typical KIP conversation...

I must go back and read the entire thread to see who else has been considering the ingenuity of combining this chapstick cosy (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knit-penis-chapstick-holder) with the tampon.

Hemp?! Seriously?!

A friend of mine in NC once commented that he'd never worn a hemp shirt that didn't chafe the hell out of his nipples. Imagine shoving that in your coochie.

Of course, one wonders how it measures up against the Moon Cup. If they say it's good for fertilizing your plants (seriously - earnestly, even - in the testimonials), who am I to argue?

I saw this earlier in this morning and just had to shake my head.
I've been known to recycle kleenex that have been found crumpled and unused in pockets, and I washed diapers, but knitting tampons is too ridiculous.

I was intentionally avoiding even looking in that thread. Well, now I've looked. But not for long. I didn't even finish p. 1 before I clicked away.

Now, I'm thinking about something kind of equivalent to carbon offsets, like landfill offsets, for those of us who have a fondness for certain disposable items. How much does it cost to alleviate guilt?

Guess I'm not that 'green' or left wing or crunchy granola as I thought. Just say no.

There's a lot to be said for menopause.

Speechless.

I am all for cloth diapers, fem pro and other washable/reusable items of that nature.

But I am not going to spend my crafty time making them by hand and that's that.

WTF?????

I didn't read past the first 3 comments before I turned to the spouse and said "knitted tampons". he said "why? OMFG!".

why indeed...and I second obscure's comment!

Some people have entirely too much time on their hands.

(Leaving to poke out mind's eye.)

Some things are better thrown away!!

They will hand out snow cones in hell before I knit tampons. I recycle, used cloth diapers on my kids, use biodegradable poop bags for my dog, use Sigg bottles instead of plastic, etc. I even lived in Seattle and wore socks with my Birkenstocks in the winter. But I am NOT sticking knit wear in my nether regions. If that means I'm dooming humankind, then sue me.

My word verification, btw, is mamall.

After reading the comments, I'm not even going to go look.
*sigh*

Yeah, I saw the topic heading on Rav and my only reaction was "oh dear."

(I'm even afraid to read the topic, knowing where things on the Big Six boards can go, and fast)

I'm all for being green but I draw the line somewhere.

Today is a day I bless my IUD and the lack of periods it bestows upon me. Also the lack of babies. Not that babies aren't nice and all, but they will smell of sick.

Also, my verification word is "unmas." As in "one more." As in, once again I thank the PTB's for my IUD. Amen.

Some things are better left unknitted.

I enjoy knitting, but not everything needs to be knitted.

Do you have to block them before using? I envision delicate lace along... never mind.

My word is "colisms".
