A Day of Crotchet Gone Away

Hello, dears! I hope you're all having a lovely day.

Now, here at Lucille's Originals, we try to keep things light and beautiful, but sometimes I can't help but get a burr in my petticoats! While it's a beautiful Spring Day out there, I can't help but be steamed. I've got a bee in my bonnet so big I can't even get my mind to sit still long enough to crochet! You see, if there's one thing that gets my buns in a kettle, it's people claiming taking credit for a Boxed Shell Column that somebody else stitched!

Call me a cynical old bat, but I can't help but wonder how many people are abusing this Internets thing to abuse other people's fine designs. I do feel that we as a knitting community should share and share alike, as the Good Lord intended, but Heavens to Betsy! Some people are giving away the whole store and asking for seconds!

As if we didn't have enough problems with whippersnappers snapping up all the good yarn or perverts defiling - defiling I tell you! - the beautiful art of crochet, it's flibbertigibbets giving away all of my Great-Great Grandmother's Original Designs away for free on the Internets! I'm so mad I could spit! Believe you me, I'm going to be filing a protest with The Crochet Guild of America! I'm fit to be tied and I'm not going to take these shenanigans lying down, believe you me!

Dearie, me! I think I've gotten a trifle overexcited. Why don't we all just calm down with a nice cup of chamomile and An Internet Music Video my Grandson sent me? He tells me that it's quite a lovely little ditty that I will quite like, so I will post it here for all of us to enjoy. At least I think that's what this is - you know at my age, there's water in the kettle but the stove doesn't get as warm as it used to!

Now, if you'll all excuse me, I'm off to take my Blood Pressure Pills and try to put together another lovely Basket for you all to enjoy. Happy Crocheting, Dears!

:A Smile on the Internet)!

Well, I haven't crocheted in years, but by Gum, you've inspired me to whip out my trusty hook and get crackin'!

Something green and black perhaps. NOT yellow.

I love you.

(But Jesus loves you the best.)

Sally, I am strangely pleased to hear this little prank has inspired some actual knitting. If you happen to make a good-sized Afghan in a soothing shade of, say, Gold and Blue with an X pattern, people might actually throw some cash your way. ;)

Buttler, don't sell yourself short - your love is just as good as Jesus'! And thanks for the shameless plug!

(. . . well, in the sack, anyways. But Jesus does cuddle with me more often afterwards, so maybe you're right.)

And thanks, MarkAndrew! :D Glad you enjoyed this little foray into the contentious world of Crochet.

If only it were shameless.

So, so much shame.

Hey, Buttler, chin up - if my upbringing as a Catholic and subsequent fall from grace have taught me anything, it's that if you don't feel intense, crippling shame afterwards, you're doing it wrong.
