Knitting blogs, post-SOPA/PIPA

Hey, did you see this gorgeous new sweater on Here's a linked image:

Oh, and did you see that wonderful cable design in the new afghan from DROPS? Here's a detail:

The cats were particularly adorable today, so adorable I captioned the photo and posted it on the I Can Has Cheeseburger site. Cute, huh?

And I finally finished that Alice Starmore aran sweater that took forEVER! Here's my own photo of my own rendition of Starmore's gorgeous design:

There you have it, blogging post-SOPA/PIPA. The idea was good -- stop internet piracy -- but the actual documents only hand control of the internet over to corporate interests. Readers in the U.S., please write to your senators and representatives to oppose these two bills. The internet is still the one form of media not entirely under corporate control -- yet.

Do you want "fair and balanced?" Okay. Here's a short video from YouTube titled "Why you SHOULD support SOPA/PIPA." Give it a click. I think you'll like it.

Exactly. Great Great visual commentary. Do you mind if I share on facebook?

Also a lot of us write fanfiction which SOPA will get rid of :( Youtube? Will be gone. Youtube videos teaching people to crochet and knit? Will likely be removed because hey oh no someone accidentally has a pepsi can in one of their shots. It's endless
