Another positive spin to the financial crisis

I’m frakking Pollyana with the financial crisis, huh?

Here’s the New York Times headline:
For Craft Sales, the Recession Is a Help

Will people learn that making things can personally satisfying (in addition to being less expensive) instead of buying badly made, mass reproduction, maybe toxic, less geniune gifts.

It’s a good thing I don’t really celebrate Christmas gifting, because I would want to knit everyone something. As it stands, I’m a good three years behind. I believe I owe Clucker and Richard Urban both a set of mitten-gloves. Also, who’s stopped smoking this year? A? You get mittens.

(not mittens, exactly, but it’s the most recent thing I’ve finished)

    I’m at 6 days and intend to stay nonsmoky for 2009… by this time next year, I plan to have earned those mittens. 🙂
