The world sickens me, but at least there's knitting

There is a painfull kerscuffle happening over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books on the issue of race.

I wish it wasn't an issue. I wish everyone could just get along, regardless of perceived race, creed, gender, nationality. Unfortunately, there is no escaping it. The legacy of genocide and slavery lives on in the US, as well as everywhere else in the world. Somebody is always killing or using somebody because they are different or alledgedly "inferior."

It digusts me.

One of my life goals is to live in a country not based on genocide.

Maybe before I die I will figure out what country that is.

In the meantime, we need to treat each other with respect. And behave humanely. Which, considering how humans behave, is an ironic word.

Knitting
On a less depressed and misanthropic note, I'm making a cosy for my French press.


If anyone is interested in the pattern, I'll post it when I'm done.

Edit: the pattern is here. Enjoy!

Wow. That's depressing.

Your French Press cozy is lovely though.

I'd love the pattern, too - it could SO easily become a tea cozy.
