A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

I'll Crochambeau you for it!

What the craft world needs is more snarkiness. I'm not talking about bitchiness--there's already more than enough of that to go around. I'm talking about some sarcastic, opinionated moxie, which "What Not to Crochet" has in spades. The good folks at What Not to Crochet go beyond playa hate, and dish some real bile. To wit:

I know some of you may disagree but why do afghan stitches have to appear on clothing?? I look at this picture and think, cool, she’s slung an afghan around her shoulders…oh oops, no, I’m wrong…it’s actually a blazer! And let’s not even mention the colours…ugh! With so many different stitches out there and coloured yarns, why make your blazer look like an afghan? An afghan is an afghan and a blazer is a blazer…please don’t mix them up…no matter what age you are, this is a universally applied principle!
You may not agree with everything that they say, but you have to applaud the
effort. Needless to say, it's riding near the top of my bookmarks. LINK
