One of our grand members, Carpenoctem wrote this lovely little satire on her blog!
With her permission I have linked to this MUST see view of a crochet perfect world!
If nothing else can get the point across I think this does ;)
Not that we truly want it that way, in fact in most of our collective CLF perfect worlds we see just being able to find a friendly, and accomodating yarn store as a boon :) We don't want everyone to crochet, or do any other kind of craft. We just want ours to have it's own identity.
Not much to ask really.
So read this wonderful post and enjoy the humor...and maybe, if you aren't a crocheter, or if you are a yarn store owner, you will actually be able to see why it is that we feel so strongly...

ABOUT THE CLF
- Fearless Leader of the CLF
- Everywhere, No where
- I started the CLF as a joke on Ravelry, back in July of 2007. The joke was on me, we're a real group, that seeks to liberate ourselves from stereo types about our craft and ourselves. Other than being called "Fearless Leader", I'm a designer, mother, editor, wife, hand spinner, yarn addict, incessant reader, and over all geek in the coolest of geeky ways.
