Re: “Caffe Trieste

As everything in life, knitting is what you make of it. Your dismissive and even hostile attitude says a lot more about you than it does about knitting and knitters.

If *you* can't be bothered to care about it more than spackling a roof (what does that even mean?), that's your issue. There are countless people out there creating works of great intricacy, creativity, and beauty. Some practical, some whimsical, some based on traditions that are hundreds of years old, some using new and innovative techniques. You certainly have no obligation to participate, but if you're going to write about it, you at least have an obligation to educate yourself first.

By the way, the phrase "Stitch & Bitch" has been around for decades longer than the book franchise. A little research goes a long way.
