Here comes a hissy fit . . .

I saw this on Rodger's blog, and I am pissed.

Here's my comment:

So, there aren't many tech savvy knitters out there, hmmmm? Google for knit blogs and see how many possibilities there are (FYI - 2,810,000). Now, multiply that by at least 2, because less than 1/2 of the knitters have blogs; hmmm, over 5 MILLION PEOPLE! And the average knitter spends $1,000 per year on yarn. Geez, starting to sound like a lot of money, isn't it? And we haven't even included people who spin, crochet, dye, felt, or weave, yet. Geez, I bet they spend money on their craft, too! Oh, but I forgot, we're a small community.

And just when, smartass Tech Crunch, was the last time your post got 81 comments?


  1. Amen, sister! Even though I didn't choose to comment on the Technorati post, I am one of those IT types (former life) who knits.

  2. Haha! I posted a comment over there too! Poor guy must not have known what kind of monster he poked, but it sure has a lot of heads!

  3. I thought that was pretty cool how we sort of banded together as a community. Duh, of course there are techie people who knit. Something very soothing and predictable about knitting, yet challenging too. Being a knitter means that you have to have some technical skills which involve construction, design, planning, counting... double-duh on that guy.
