Just one working for our cause

While still suffering from my lack of knitting spark, I decided to take a tour around some of my favorite knitting blogs for a little inspiration. I came to the Yarn Harlot's blog who wrote the other day about people not understanding that there are numbers of knitters out there in force. Specifically she wrote about the media under estimating the power of knitters. As a member of the media, I am sad to say, this is the truth. As a member of the media, I want you all to know that I am working to change this! At a former place of employment, I was constantly pitching knitting related ideas to an editor. Of course, she usually laughed at me and my idea and tossed me something lame to work with. However, at that same publication, I went ahead and wrote a column about knitting and I got a readers response from it! Once I showed it to her, she thought, hmmm, maybe there is something to this knitting thing. After that, she didn't laugh quite as hard as before when I pitched a knitted related story idea. I'll keep working for us though. The main stream will admit us as one of their own one day. And if not, screw 'em, we'll still have a hell of a lot of fun while knitting and talking about them!
