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.
