Those same people will be asking you to make them things in a couple of years.

Forgot to add— I’m actually only 15 and have been knitting since I was six so yeah the jokes getting old… Very old. My mom was actually the one who taught me to knit and she’s only in her early forties now. I guess I’m kind of over the stereotype by now as I have never been the teenage “norm” but regardless it’s still rude and very 19th century

A blanket can’t be too big. You could wrap a blanket around the whole world, in fact we have one it’s called the ozone, and no one would be complaining.

Anonymous asked: The "knitting/crocheting/quilting is for old ladies" schtick is ageist, tired, lame, and unoriginal. It isn't funny, and I don't think it's ever been funny. Probably 75%+ of my crafty friends are under the age of thirty, myself included. It's ridiculous that being crafty with your hands is still considered something for older people.
