I have a list of things I want to knit. So why do I insist on looking at more patterns? Do I think I'm going to find something better to knit than the Central Park Hoodie? Are my sock books not chock full of sock patterns? Don't I have a disks full of enough patterns to keep any normal human being busy knitting? My guess is, not enough.
I'm not a big fan of Knit Picks. They have a tendency to take an item of quality and duplicate it on the cheap by having in made in China. They've made themselves look like heroes to the knitter on a budget while screwing the original artisan. Don't believe me? Take a look-see.
Now I'm faced with a problem. I recently received my Knit Picks catalog. I took a quick glance through it before I tossed it in the garbage and ran across a pattern TO DIE FOR. In order to get the pattern, I have to buy it from Knit Picks. I really don't want to give them anymore money, so what do I do? Sorry, I won't be linking to that pattern, I made the mistake of posting it on Facebook yesterday and I wish I hadn't. You want the link, Google it. Want to know what pattern? Too bad. Knit Picks can kiss my butt, I'm not linking to them.
So now I have to figure out what to do. Will I be compromising my own integrity if I find I can buy the pattern from them for a few dollars instead of buying their $30 kit or do I need to just find a similar pattern. Oh bother, I don't know what to do now.
As if I don't have enough projects.
