take notes...

How to Be a Bad-Ass Knitter

1. Knit whatever the hell you want . . . whenever you want.
2. Buy as much yarn (and books and needles etc.) as you want, whenever the hell you want.
3. Never, ever, apologize for knitting.
4. Never, ever, apologize because you think something you knit isn't "good" enough.
5. Never, ever, apologize about how you knit: right-handed, left-handed, or with your toes!
6. Traditional knitting is timeless.
7. Display your stash with pride!
8. You don't have to follow a pattern exactly -- make changes if you wanna.
9. Never apologize for knitting cat/dog hair into your sweater. It's all the warmer!
10. Whenever a non-knitter asks you a stupid question, remember that you carry long, sharp sticks.

Re: Quick Post/Folsom goodness

So. . . .you're saying that San Fran is no more accepting of the makeup/unusual hair thang than Indianapolis was?

To answer your question Mr. Annon...No it has NOTHING to do with San Fran. I was referring to the messages I get on Youtube. San Francisco is great, I just got back from the Folsom Street Fair...Let me just say its not for the faint of heart. But it was soo much fun.

If you don't know what the fair is let me give yo a bit of a run down...

The Folsom Street Fair is a true San Francisco. Over 400,000 people in attendance covering 13 city blocks, the Fair is the largest leather/fetish event in the world and the third largest, single-day outdoor event in California.

And its just a few blocks from my house...

Don't people WORK in this city....

I work a full time job, but my hours are always today I had to be in at 7 but im off at noon....This is most people on San Francisco. This is why when I'm out in my neighborhood park relaxing and knitting there are no less than 50 people doing the same, okay maky not the knitting part, but you get the idea LOL

Let alone if I was at Dolores Park where the daily afternoon crowed are all having picnics, breaking open some wine, pass around a joint, or just sun bathing....*insert photo of said park...*

As you can see this is a great spot to lounge and view the city...

San Franciscans make time to enjoy days like this, its a great way to unwind and relax mid week or just have a nice lnch break from work....
