I thought so, and will keep it for a couple of days. Then even though no longer part of family I might bring back MM.
I would love to see MM again. You must be missing them. Not the all work maybe, but they were a part of your life.
Hey cindye, my kitty avatar has returned! I don't think we need to be "condensending" soup anymore.
I've made them with double strands of the scrubby yarn. All garter stitch in a rectangle shape. I love them! They work great.
They get some perverse pleasure from being annoying. Unfortunately the ignore list does not keep the idiotic posts from showing up.
PO bans people for any reason or no reason and her minions follow suit. They are all on my ignore list yet they frequently feel the need to reply to a comment I make. They have a very strange idea of how to ignore someone.
They are all on MY ignore list and I'm on theirs too, yet they seek me out while I'm conversing with others just to respond to something I've said. I don't get the reasoning behind that. They're here day and night banging out insults so I wonder if they ever do anything else.
I wonder if I'm banned in the sanitarium? I've never checked. Oh well, who cares! It's not like I'd ever read there anyway.
That's adorable. You did a fabulous job!
I've often wondered the same thing. Maybe they aren't that good at their chosen craft and too embarrassed to post, maybe they aren't smart enough to figure out how to post pictures, or they just derive some sick pleasure from joining forums and causing problems. But to question J-J and her posts? That's a new low for even them.
J-J has helped many of us with our projects. I simply can't see why anyone would question her contribution to KP, unless of course that someone does NOT knit or crochet. Or, as you said, maybe they sucked at it and gave up. Then they would never bother to read in Main and would never see J-J's posts. They could say
they read in Main, then again, I could say
I read KT's or RM's posts, but I never do. They've got such gutter mouths! We all cuss and swear from time to time, and I'm certainly not clutching my pearls, but this is not the place to do it. The forum rules are clear on that subject.
This is a favorite of mine:https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/soft-serve
It's written in fingering weight for babies but can easily be adjusted for larger sizes by using thicker yarn, larger needles, more stitches. I love the idea of changing colors for the "flavors" or using one of the "sprinkle" color yarns.
J-J always has something of interest to say. She's a wealth of knowledge on all things knitting related. Out of the 457 topics you've started I was only able to locate 2 that are related to knitting, and just about that many posts that answer questions or offer help to those with knitting/crocheting problems. It seems to me you're the one without anything to say.
Exactly! It's strange that anyone would question what J-J posts since she's mostly in the knitting topics. Then again, KnittingThyme is not contributing in the Main forum at all so she'd never see J-J's posts. The bigger question is why would anyone that doesn't knit or crochet post on a knit and crochet forum? That's a question for all the solarium trolls as I hardly ever see any of them in Main, and when I do, they give the wrong answer.
Yes take away their platform. Good idea.
No, bad idea! The attic was created for controversial topics, whether they're started there or moved there. Without it, the controversial topics will return to GCC and we don't want that. Neither does the ostrich. If you then want those topics to be banned, that won't work either. Who is going to police the site reading every topic and it's replies? That's too much work and the site would probably just get shut down.
If your gauge is too loose, the socks wear out faster. I'm usually 9 stitches per inch, sometimes more. If the foot length isn't long enough, the foot stretches too much and becomes weak at the toe.
Same here. I have to make them every SuperBowl Sunday.
Super bowl Sunday here is a Cheddar Cheese Fondue. Yummy. I also make sliders for the guys but I'm happy with just the fondue.
Some of my friends have very light hair like you. I've tried to convince them to go lavender (sort of like yours but with a little more purple), I think it's beautiful. On my last visit, I had my hair dyed with blue-fuschia overtone. I love it!
Oh yes! Trish, lavender would look spectacular on you.
I had some very nice nuns that I became close to in high school. I was relating an experience that I had in Kindergarten.
We had some really nice nuns in high school too. Grammar school, not so much. They were all a hundred years old and smelled funny. And yes, they hit kids with a ruler or pointer. There is one time that sticks out in my mind. One poor kid wasn't feeling well during math class. He turned kind of green and did a head desk. The nun comes swarming in and bangs on his desk with a pointer. No response so she starts hitting him with it. The kid picked up his head and threw up all over Sr. Marjorie! I remember her apologizing profusely to the boy, sending him to the nurse, then getting a sub in so she could go to the nun house and change her clothes.
