You dislike public art?
No. I'm not a fan of activities like sewing and whatnot. Or at least doing them.

You realize you would be completely naked if nobody ever sewed, right?

They have machines.

Bring back slavery.

Pearl one, pearl two, **Crack of the whip** pearl one, pearl two.

Seriously, the only reason knitting persists is so that grandmothers can prove they love you without cashing their pension cheque.

Grandfathers prove they love you by pouring another glass of stout after a hard Sundays fishing.

Re: Riley Frazier

Yarn isn't free, y'know.

And I've decided this is the year I learn to crochet... preferably before the snow flies, sometime in October. I'm tired of going through winters with no afghans (the people who "helped" me move from my house to an apartment decided I didn't need them, and threw them out - every last one my grandmother and great-aunt made).

Re: Riley Frazier

How odd the lack of a relationship between the words crochet and crochety.

Re: Riley Frazier

I have a massive crocheted bread spread my grandmother made and left me. I have no idea what to do with it as bedspreads are not something I'd ever use. It's bone color so it's not like I can hang it up.. it's made of some kind of cotton. It's very elaborate. It's been in a closet for years now. I guess when I die it will end up in someone else's closet.

Re: Riley Frazier

If it has sentimental value in your family, why not give it to a relative? Or if you don't want to keep it and have no family to give it to, that's the kind of thing that can be donated to charity. I help run our local branch of Freecycle (I know Freecycle operates in your country), and bedspreads are among the items people give away/ask for.

Re: Riley Frazier

No I will force the next generation and the next and the next to keep it in their closets!

You never know. Keep it for cold weather.

Re: Riley Frazier

Bedspreads are decorative, they don't warm. And it's cold weather right now, I'm typing with a faux leopard fur blanket over my legs and my star wars hoodie on. No central heating ftw.

You know when I first came across the abbreviation 'ftw' I thought it meant 'fuck the what'. For several years I thought it was 'wtf' so discombobulated by whatever it was wtf'ing at that it turned itself round into 'ftw'.

A nurse once accused me of making the word 'discombobulated' up. "That's not a word.. what kind of word is that?! You must have made that word up!"

Re: Riley Frazier

You could use it for picnics. You did call it a "bread spread", after all.

Re: Riley Frazier

I don't like eating outside on the ground.

And really, I have quite a lot of closets. I think I'm good. I just feel a little twinge not using it for anything when I see it.

Drape it over a couch, if you have one?
