Knitting-Looming-Machine Knitting, Crochet and other stuff
I like to do different crafts dealing with yarn, polycord and thread. Creating something to give to loved ones and seeing the smiles makes it all the more fun. "When there's a single thief, it's robbery. When there are a thousand thieves, it's taxation." ~Vanya Cohen

Single crochet in the same place as joining, chain 10, sc in the back of the next single crochet from round one, repeat around till you have 10 chains, slip stitch in the base of the beginning.

It so amazes me that this woman could so put herself down this way. She is bitching about woman being "macho", that badass thing, when being woman is much more then that.
She seems to think that we are suppose to have choice with out having choice. It looks like the only choice that I as a woman should have is the choice that someone professing to be a woman would choose for me. Now that is just stupid talking.
I choose to do what I want to do. Not what some bimbo thinks I should do or be. Wow, the nerve of some people. This just makes me think poor person. She is missing the whole point of being a woman and that is just sad.
