Had one HELL of a morning starting at 2:00 AM when my parked car decided to go CRAZY with the horn BLARING by itself!!!!  Woke up the neighbors and I'm outside trying desperately to SHUT IT UP!!!!  Finally two police officers arrived who helped me to dismantle the horn assembly so we could FINALLY get some SLEEP!!!!   Razz  Unfortunately, I've been so wound up since this stuff started that I haven't been able to get back to sleep.  ICK!!!!!!

Wow that is odd. Is it a car alarm that short circuited?

The police thought the same thing until I explained that it had never had a car alarm because it's so old.

Laughing Bones I have experienced the exact same thing (though not with crocheting). What is it, that they want your attention on them and not on what you're doing? Envy probably too. People-junk! I like your response. Very Happy

Thanks, Guest.

What also gets me very irritated is that no matter what I am working on, there always seem to be at least one moron who approaches me with the demand of:  "I WANT!!! GIMME!!!!"  I'm at the point in my life where I prefer to look them in the eye and respond:  "F____ OFF!"

Bones

There's been a recent update on this.

There's a group that meets, in the next town over, that works together on either crocheting or knitting projects.  One of the guys was sharing that as he was finishing up an afghan that he had been crocheting for MONTHS, a total stranger approached him about it.  The stranger wanted this guy to just hand it over!   Shocked  The crochet-guy looked this idiot right in the face and told him, you pay me $900.00 then you can have it!  Idiot then tried to GUILT him into forgetting about payment and simply hand the afghan over because HE wants it, HE'S ENTITLED and WHY should HE PAY $900 when he could get it CHEAP?!?  (Some a$$hole$ have a LOTTA NERVE!   Mad)  The crochet-guy pointed out:  (a) the type of yarn he was using which is NOT a CHEAP BLEND, (b) the number of skeins of this EXPENSIVE yarn that was required to make this afghan, (c) the amount of TIME that was required to create this afghan, plus (d) the amount of LABOR that goes into creating an afghan by hand from scratch!  (I told the crochet-guy that he's not alone when he encounters idiots like that!)

It never ceases to amaze me when these greedy idiots pop up while us needle-workers are creating something!  Sheesh!!!!!   Razz

They're just jealous, Bones. They couldn't make a playhouse out of a box. No imagination... and no gumption to even try to make something.
Take yes, make no.

Your friend needs to start knitting; the needles are sharper.

You're right...these greedy idiots are jealous!

He's like me....crocheting is easier than knitting.

People who don't make things themselves don't understand the time, skill, and personal attachment that an artist has to what they make. They also shop at big outlets with stuff made in China....so they figure hey afghans...you can purchase one of those for $20.00 right?......But of course a knitter pays more than 20.00 for the raw materials before the project is even started it costs more for the fiber and needles.

Then of course there is the choosing of the materials that will go into a project and finding or making the pattern for it...it's all very personal.  

I've seen skeins of cashmere for about 45.00 each. Of course I've never made anything out of it. Some people just don't know this.
Then of course there is the domestic specialty hand spun wool that is between 30-45 or more for a skein.

I think a good response is to tell the person who wants the item for an unfair price to go purchase a lamb and figure out what to do with it.

LOL!!!  Or tell the Idiot what to do with himself!!!  LOL!!!!

BTW, I was reading the advice columns this morning and, after reading the first letter, I'm thinking that the so-called "friend" is CLEARLY AN N!!!!  My N-relatives used to attempt to pull the same type of crap and then had the NERVE to wonder WHY I stopped having anything to do with them and WHY they NEVER got another gift from me!  Geez!!!!!   Razz

BTW, I've seen skeins of yarn that cost $55.00 or more, apiece, because it contained other types of expensive fibers such as silk!  I also know people who purchase raw wool, freshly shorn off the animal, clean it, card it, spin it into yarn, dye it whatever color(s) they want, then either knit with it, crochet with it, or weave it into other projects.  (Yes, these individuals actually have weaving looms and spinning wheels, along with the related equipment, in addition to a wide collection of knitting needles and crochet hooks!)  That also takes a LOT of work, especially when you want enough yarn to create a large-size afghan!!!

Unfortunately, as I've often heard it said:  "You can't fix stupid!"

Once upon a time, I had friends who raised sheep just for this purpose. Always wanted to learn how to use one of the big floor looms - I can weave with handlooms, hook rugs, quilt, etc... just no patience for crochet or knitting. Makes no sense - I can needlepoint hours at a time (nope; cross stitch is banned too; it makes my eyes cross!)

In one of our local history parks, we have the Island Farm. They raise livestock, have a weaver, blacksmith, etc the way it was done in the 1800s. Hard to believe that a lot of people have no clue how people lived pre-electricity, grocery stores, etc. It's a lot of work - but you're never bored!  Wink

Granted, one is never bored with this.

BTW, I just saw the sad news about Davy Jones, formerly of The Monkees:

I was more of a Mickey fan.

I can remember when Mickey Dolenz was in the role of Circus Boy back during the late 1950's.
