To echo Carol's post about a comment frenzy on her blog, I say enough already!
Wendy and I were mentioned in the latest issue of "Yarn Market News," and their write up of podcasts. WE DID NOT solicit this write up or have any input into the writing of the article. But, the last line implied that "Lime and Violet," another knitting podcast was a "knockoff" of us (THEIR WORDS NOT OURS!). This has started a maylay of nasty comments on Lime and Violet's message boards.
I did not agree to podcast with Wendy to return to this high school like land of he said she said, does s/he like me? I do it out of pure love of knitting, talking about yarn, visiting yarn shops and BONDING with fellow knitters. If you don't like it, don't listen. Don't make me feel crappy with nasty comments about my opinions. They are MY OPINIONS and the last time I checked the constitution, I'm entitled to them.
I said this on the podcast, and to my mom so many times, "knitting is a hobby, not a competetion." I don't want to be better than anyone else-I just want to have fun with what I'm doing---if this is what is going to happen though when we are COMPLIMENTED (and really haven't even been able to enjoy this!) then I really don't care to do it anymore. I can go back to be a blogger very easily living life fairly anonymously with my random readers.
So read what you will, write what you will, listen to what you will...but don't trash me anymore...it took me years to get past the psychic scars of adolescence and I'm not interested in doing it again.
