Every time I see a crochet themed tee shirt, poster, coffee mug etc. that has a ball of yarn with TWO FREAKING HOOKS jammed in it I scream NOOOOOO! and then swear at the design till it is no longer in my sight! I have been crocheting off and on for the better part of 75 years and I have yet to see any crocheter use 2 FREAKING HOOKS simultaneously. Nor have I ever seen a crochet pattern that requires 2 FREAKING HOOKS to be used simultaneously!! So why are these designers using 2 FREAKING HOOKS?? Or am I the only crocheter that goes ballistic at this??

You can go to zazzle.com and design your own crochet themed t-shirt.

What makes me scream is the fireplace and patio commercial that has grandma in her rocker just banging the knitting needles together. Not a stitch on one needle or even the needle inserted in a loop. Just banging them together. Grrrrrr

I know what you mean. I have a lot of pet peeves. Like sayings that don't make sense. 'I could care less' means I care. 'I couldn't care less' means you don't care, but people use the first saying more often to express that they don't care WHICH MAKES NO SENSE! Or the car commercial that said 'life happens between empty and full'. The only thing that happens between empty and full is that you go to the gas station! If that is what your life is, I feel bad for you! Or the allergy commercial that says six is greater than one! DUH! It isn't that it makes no sense-it's stating the obvious which makes me crazy! I am glad to have a DVR to skip over the stupid commercials!
I would feel the same about the crochet themed items too.

That doesn't bother me, but when someone calls a crocheted project knitting, and vice versa, it makes me crazy.

I've been fortunate enough to never have seen that, probably because I knit far more than I crochet. I agree that it's totally bizarre. The mental picture of anyone's actually trying to crochet with two hooks does have it's amusing side as long as I don't have to see the "finished" project.

Indeed! And that happens around my area all the time. Trying to correct the terminology is always good for snarky responses..... I usually tell them it's akin to calling an automobile a bicycle.

Wow, I'm lucky--I've never seen that one, either.

And one of my pet peeves is people who hear it said wrong, never give it a thought, and change their correct way of saying it to the incorrect version *sigh*. I have an adult stepdaughter who has done that for the past 48 years. I have to bite my tongue.....

You have to realize that people who do not knit or crochet don't know the difference. Some of them will know a lot about things of which I'm totally ignorant. Of course, I do not try to create art based on things I know nothing about.
My main pet peeve is to see the wrong use of certain words, like THERE, THEIR, THEY'RE, YOUR, YOU'RE. We are all blessed with different gifts, which is what it takes to make the world go around - or should it be "go round"?. If you find errors in this post, please forgive me. I'm good at writing, but not perfect.

My brother in law says "supposably" and my son in law says "all the sudden." Both men are very intelligent and well educated. So why?????
I certainly understand about biting your tongue.

And "lot's" of unnecessary quotation "mark's." Confusion about "its"and "it's" is another. It's "voila`" not "wala" or "wah la."

Believe me, I could write a book if I could be sure it wouldn't tip me over the edge of insanity, and I'm standing right on the edge as it is!

I guess I've got to the ripe old age where stuff doesn't bother me like it used to. Makes life a lot easier on me. I don't care whether a picture has 1 or 2 crochet hooks, whether crocheting is called knitting or vice versa, and when people spell things wrong, well, maybe they just didn't have the education some of us had.
