Whoa there, USOC…

… not a smart move to go and insult millions of knitters worldwide connected by Ravelry!

After the first wave of outrage took place inside the Ravelry forum it has spilled over to Twitter. Fellow knitter and blogger caityrosey has a great account on her blog. Hop over if you’d like to read some of the Tweets she has collected. If you have registered with Ravelry (and if you’re a knitter and haven’t done so yet, you really should do), you can find the full text and ensuing discussion here.

By now the first online publications have taken up the issue.

Well, you’ll have to excuse me now, I have to go and insult some athletes with my knitting. Maybe I should take up crochet too, for good measure…
