Forgive me, Yarn Goddess

For I have crocheted.
Yes, I play for both teams. (HA!) Saturday I knitted all day on Sonnet, and have turned the second side. I have several inches left to knit on the body, and then off to the sleeves. Saturday night, though, I was bored with blue. I was bored with the big heavy thing sitting in my lap. I had looked all over, earlier in the day, for my set of crochet hooks, to pick up a stitch I'd dropped on Sonnet. So I sat there, bored, and noticed some cotton. Variegated pink and purple and white. All the colors I hate, in one yarn. (Well, I like purple.) All the colors my mother-in-law loves. Before I knew it, I had hook in hand, and I was crocheting a pink, purple and white variegated face cloth. I hope she likes it. I feel a little dirty.

It's okay! Didn't you hear, we're all getting along now. I mean the Knitters and Crocheters. Which would be the Sharks and which the Jets? Anyway, that's all in the past!! My SnB even allows crocheters.. but then again, this IS Santa Cruz. ;)

Oh, please. I have been known to (brace yourself) combine knit and crochet in one piece. As Goddess is my witness, it did not burst into flames. The Craft Police did not hunt me down and rebuke me for crimes against nature. The sky did not fall. Live and let live, I say.

Or if we have to be rival gangs, maybe we could at least get some songs out of it? Gee, Goddess of Knitting, I beg you to chill, it's just that now and then crocheting gives me a thrill...

LOL! Perhaps you have a multiple personality - you know the knitter and the crocheter; they struggle and who knows who will win? Excellent post!
