Knitting: Sibella Cardigan by Carrie Bostick Hoge
Yes, I'm behind the ball when it comes to All the Light, but my library finally had a copy on the shelves when I visited. See you on the other side of 530 pages.
But you know what? Why is it so bad to like/read/watch/listen to/knit something after it's popular? I understand enjoying the idea of liking things "before they were cool", but why must that include shaming someone who did not? No, I may not have picked up this book if I hadn't seen it everywhere, but does that make me less of a person? Does it somehow decrease my intelligence? Does it take away from my creativity?
The answer is no. It does not make me or you any less of a person just because you were late to the party in regards to that one thing. So let's stop shaming others just because it makes us feel better or smarter. Let us, instead, encourage them to discover new things and enjoy what they love without passing judgment on them.
