EDIT: It is not that I am a day late, in fact, I am quite on time! However, I am, as it would seem, rather horrible at reading calendars. So Happy Independence Day, India! Main tumse pyaar karti hoon, mera jaan!
I am absolutely aware that I’m a day late, but I’m always a day late in wishing people “Happy Birthday,” so at least I’m consistent, right? Anyhow, what’s important is that the sentiment has been expressed, and so happy Independence Day, India! That name may be new to your history, but the people who make up your lovely, lovely land are part of a long and (mostly) wonderful history (nobody’s history is completely wonderful, but that’s what makes us interesting, right?), and I hope that you can continue that for many years to come.
By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish.
I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob.
Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

That’s such a nice pic! A nice post from you, as always !!! 🙂
Awww, thanks! I admit that I’m really, really lax in making them these days, but I’m glad to know there’s someone still reading!
you are much much better than me! After all these days, I have just started to write myself – and for now haven’t gone beyond the first post, even though I would love to share so many things.
and worry not, you have many readers and friends for sure 🙂
