giving young knitters a bad name...

Yesterday's Wash Post Express featured a small column that was meant to publicize an area visit by Debbie Stoller. But, somehow they got it all wrong. The horrible title, The Price of Fabric Envy, is just the tip of the iceberg! (Warning: this may take a while to load! The pdf is the entire issue, the article is on pg25).

I'm not exactly sure what crackhead wrote this article but it just doesn't seem to make any sense. The scenario laid out in the blurb feels fictitious, with the use of several stereotypes about new knitters, "hipsters", and women in general. Thankfully, I'm already familiar with Stoller's work because to the outside observer this piece would make the event seem elitist and uninviting.
