More Men Doing Needlework in Public

I saw this ad from the Prostate Cancer Foundation on TV the other night and cracked up.

Rosey Grier still does needlework, but this time it's knitting and as a public service. Now, if this really echoed women's stitching groups I'm familiar with, well, let's just say it would have been a bit livelier.

And they said it couldn't be done. I finally managed to get caught up on the ANG Stitch of the Month. Phew! The May stitch only took me about an hour to an hour and a half to complete last night, just as a couple of friends assured me it would. I was skeptical, though, primarily because the April stitch did not go very smoothly. What a bear that was! Instead of the hour and a half that these same friends told me it would take to finish, it took me at least five or six hours, including the time to rip out that session of stitching with the wrong color. Gah! I think I belong to the slow stitching movement. You know, like the slow food thing?

Now I should really get back to my bargello correspondence course, which I am definitely not completing on time. I believe the deadline is sometime in June. Yikes! I think I'll just be happy to finish it sometime this year.

  2. It's LOLcat for "Okay, thanks, bye." For more of this, go to www.lolcatbible.com, which is where I found it.

  3. I hadn't seen the ad before, but I just loved it! If only a man would serve coffee and dessert to my knitting group! Thanks for sharing.
