Unrelated But Interesting
Hello there - it's time for Three on Thursday, and today I am sharing three things that I came across recently and found interesting, though not related to one another.
The first is from a few months ago, and I kept forgetting to share it. This article is about yarn that generates its own electricity! As it turns out, we won't be knitting with it, which given my habit of having a cup of tea or something while I knit, is probably just as well. It would be incredibly ironic if my tea spilled and I was electrocuted to death by the yarn. In any event, I found it to be kind of fascinating.
I kept seeing people refer to a brouhaha that erupted as a result of something in the most recent Laine Magazine. I didn't know what it was until I found a link to the Instagram post that started the whole thing. I find the whole thing ridiculous, to be honest, and am never as amazed as when people take *personal* offense at something that was not about them in the first place, and then feel the need to let the rest of us know how offended we should be as well. This whole thing, in my opinion, is seriously much ado about nothing.
I laughed a few times when I read this, since I am one of those people who are always listening to others' conversations when I am out in public. Obviously, only when they are talking loud enough for me to hear, it's not like I break in to the group and sit there to listen! But though there are aspects of this that are just too bad (no one likes to be lied to), the tweets amuse me greatly.
We're almost to the weekend - YAY!
