—–END KNITTER’S GEEK CODE BLOCK—–

What is all that hubbub about? Well, as stated, it’s my knitting geek code and it simply sez that I’m still getting my feet wet. We’ve all known for a while now that I’m a geek/nerd. No hiding that fact. I’ve come to accept, even revel in it. So when I can combine my geekiness with a craft of choice – Whoa, Nelly! There’s no stopping me!

For those of you already familiar with the knitter’s geek code, you may have noticed different items. Personally, I didn’t feel that the posted list of qualifiers covered it. (Yeah, you can’t satisfy everyone all the time, right?) Well, instead of calling it a day, I added my additional qualifiers to my code. And you’re more than welcome to include them in yours.

  • Loom = knitting looms, boards, or knitting w/out needles
  • Char = knitting for charity or others (selfless knitting)
  • Self = knitting for yourself (selfish knitting) and no, there’s nothing wrong with this

In other knit-news, I’ve had a major stash reorg. Gone are my 70′s acrylic yarns (thnx anywho, g’ma & ma). I’ve donated a load of yarn that I would never be able to work my way through (and didn’t particularly want to) to the fine ladies of Yarn and Stitches. They will take this to a local women’s prison hospital, where the inmates/patients crochet and donate the finished items. A little good karma for me; a lil’ good karma for them. Heck, we all win!

Best of all… this makes my current stash “manageable” (ha!) and the thought of buying new yarn is less guilt-inducing and more probable after a.. few… more… projects [phew].
