About December 16th, 2005

12:04 am
I was doing my laundry, and what do I see? About 7 pattern books from the 50's sitting on the loan a shelf. I of course have them all in my apartment. The only problem is, they are all tatting and edging and things that scare me. I mean, they make table clothes out of doileys. intricate, and time wasting. I do admit they are nice though. The only part I can't really understand is one pattern calls for a size 30 needle. Is this some sort of conversion? I know letters, that's about it. If anyone wants from cool edging patterns I can scan some. I also have ruffled doilies. They look neat.

Thanks for the help!

(Edit: I just realized that maybe 30 means knitting needles? There are a couple knitting patterns in the books.)

Word from the Mod 12:05 pm
Despite my own personal feelings on the subject and what has been the case in the past...

I've received enough polite, carefully-phrased requests lately asking that potentially mature or non-worksafe or kid-safe content be put behind a cut with a warning, that I'm concluding it's now the will of the majority. In other words, said content is allowed, but please place it behind a cut.

If you just don't wanna draw heat, just use the lj-cut when in doubt.

Thank you, folks, for being polite and non-drama-mode about it all, etc. etc. While I personally don't think that penises, tampons, menstruation, breasts, etc. are upsetting or pornographic, I hereby bow to what appears to be the will of the majority at this point, and ask that we all accept the following compromise: if you think anyone might be upset by it, stick it behind a cut. And if it's behind a cut and you read it despite a warning and find it offputting, remember you had the choice to click the cut or not.
