You Ain't Shit if You Don't Knit

As those of you who know me know, I have recently decided that knitting is where it's at, and that all should tremble before the power of my needles. TREMBLE!!

I learned how to knit a few months ago, and proceeded to dump more money into this damn hobby than any hobby before. More than pastels, more than fancy-pillow-making, even more than bronze. I rationalize my spending with the fact that the fruits of my labor are getting wrapped up in nice, pretty Christmas paper and given away. I don't see it as too many dollars spent on wads of Baby Alpaca fuzz and aluminum chopsticks. No. I see it as significant credit card debt in the name of BABY JESUS. Baby Jesus supports my art. Baby Jesus thinks knitting is the bomb.

Baby Jesus knows that...

And if Baby Jesus doesn't know it, my sister will. Or, she will at least act appropriately impressed with this freakish set of fuzzy white accessoria.


  1. Dude, that stuff rocks! I tremble before your knitting prowess!

  2. Hello,

    I was browsing around and found my way to your blog. I enjoyed reading it for a spell. I noticed you mentioned you had some credit card debt. So I thought I would relate to you my story.

    I was in a similar situation as you, where I had gotten myself into a situation where I could not repay my credit card debt. I had gone way over my head with over $17k in debt.

    I found a way in which to legally dispute my credit card debt. By doing so I've never repaid my debt and never made another payment. I wrote letters of dispute saying that the banks never loaned my any of their own money. I used a technique that is not known by very many people to legally dispute over $17k in credit card debt.
