Hey now, no hating on my craft of choice. You don’t see me coming into your house and insulting the way crotchers eat up cheap yarn or whatever seems insulting on this front…?
I figured it actually has to do with the fact that it’s simpler and easier to make things with a small circumference when you just have the one hook—knitting can get kind of confusing once you start factoring in DPNs and/or the Magic Loop method, even if you know what you’re doing. (I can do both no problem now, but it’s always a little precarious.)
And anyway, these kinds of patterns are always written for crochet…perhaps it’s a self-perpetuating cycle.
oh pshaw, you knitters are all “it’s so easy! i sit in dark movie theaters and just knit for two hours! i never even have to look!”
i see your reasonable rationale and choose to ignore it because the cute clothing patterns i see are almost always for knitters, so i think having the cutest amigurumi patterns being crochetable is just the universe’s way of evening things out :)
On Clara Oswald (in an article about Jenna-Louise Coleman leaving):
“From a Doctor she could sort-of control because he had a crush on her, she’s landed with a Doctor who barely registers that she’s a girl.
“They’re great friends and all that but she has to be his human interface with everybody else.”
I’ve been disappointed in Clara’s role as The Companion, which feels very Manic Pixie Dreamgirl. Now Moffat’s statement make me think that his guiding rule for Clara was that she was the object of The Doctor’s affections… which both minimized her character and his need to develop Clara as a well-rounded character of her own agency.
The Doctor has a crush on a cute girl! She can make him do things! That’s enough, right?
(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)
“Our friendship is made up of these brief frenzied exchanges, but the quality of our conversation, for all its feverish outpouring, is genuine.”

slightly older female friends are truly a force for good in this world
indeed! and much older female friends are also pretty damn awesome and good-making :)
