VOGUE Knitting

This morning I learned that there’s a magazine called VOGUEknitting.

    As a home school graduate myself, I would be terrified to see what "TV GUIDE Home Schooling!" might entail. (Many, many features on the Duggar family, one might expect. And perhaps a show on DIY denim jumper making.)

      You know, I blew that joke. The joke was supposed to be how utterly antithetical television is to studying and/or doing homework. But, duh: as you (humorously!) noted/made clear, it also reads as if I'm suggesting an issue filled with content relevant for home schooling.

      You know, people say that if you have to explain a joke it guarantees that joke can't then possibly be funny, but I'm quite sure those people are wrong, aren't you?

      It's good to see you over here taking a little break, friend.

      • Kara

        It's definitely still funny. I've known more home schoolers who think television is literally a tool of Satan for corrupting their children than you might want to believe.

        I'm enjoying it myself!

    I bet someone could make serious money setting up underground grandma-fights in their garage.

    It's kind of like television lately, is it not? I feel old because I remember when MTV actually was about music and played music videos.

      It could be the Grandma Fight Club!

    Wow! My good buddy is the editor for VogueKnitting! How random that you’d post that on here! I’m off to share the link with him :)

  • Emily

    Oh, LOL, I realized you were making fun. That’s ok, he’ll still get a kick out of it! (Sorry for the double post!)

    • http://www.johnshore.wordpress.com John Shore

      No way! You KNOW the editor of VOGUEknitting? That's so awesome. (And it's a HE? Awesomer still!) Too fun!

  • Karen

    I think I need to get "SOUTHERN LIVING Igloo Decorating!" How does one hang a chandelier from an ice ceiling? As hot as it was today, an igloo sounds splendid!

    Christianity Today- the non-judgmental, pro-gay issue

    Oh wait, that seems to be this blog- which I am starting to like as much as I like Vogue Knitting (which is to say, quite a lot). Sometimes what looks like a contradiction is really a reflection of our own assumptions.

    AARP Ultimate Fighting is particularly funny when you consider that the current Ultimate champ is 56 years old….and Herschel Walker just won his first bout at 48.
