Continental Knitting Demo (Pornography?)



Here is the thing...the word pornography needs to be revamped, really because it applies to so many things now, not just a movie starring Ron Jeremy or Jenna Jameson (of course I know who that is?). I mean, we have eco-porn (walk of the penguins), environmental-porn (Al Gore as himself), restoration porn (This Old House)--I could keep going on. Listen, you know it's porn cuz most of this stuff you are just watching for your own personal thrill, entertainment & deep-seated (sometimes dark) pleasure...even if it is handy, righteous, educational or even pretty (we love you, Martha!). Enter my kind of porn: craft porn. I LOVE IT and specifically Continental Knitting porn...it makes me feel like a whole person. Please just enjoy this XXX rated journey into craft.

on behalf of the Whole Wide World, can i just say that we're so glad to have you back?!? it's crazy posts like this one that keep us comin' back for more... i wouldn't call your video craft porn (but then, you know what they say: 'porn is in the eye of the beholder'), i would pick something more like this:

To combat the sometimes negative connotations of the words pornography and porn, lots of people on the web use pron or pr0n (with a zero). It's a fun, nerdy, non-creepy-dude-attracting alternative. :)

Hey there, I'm the random person in Mind's Eye who was talking about those videos... super-embarrassing that I couldn't remember THIS arcane and complicated URL: http://www.knittinghelp.com/ -- lol ;-) Anyway she has some great videos, most available in continental and "regular" versions. Enjoy! --Bonnie
