There was a great article in the Sunday Baltimore Sun on the revival of knitting and other crafts among young people, both women and men - check it out. There was one quote from the article that describes me perfectly:
"They may keep long lists of "things to make," but sneer at the impossible quest for perfection implicit in craft queen Martha Stewart's approach, and revel in the irony of creating while dirty dishes pile sky high."
One look at the state of my kitchen floor will tell you this is true. I stayed home sick yesterday and spent most of the day working on my cross stitch project instead of doing any sort of cleaning. I did manage to get a couple of loads of laundry done, though.
