A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I had some ugly patterns all set to share with you today but last night I got an email that truly made me say, "What the hell is this?" (Actually, I think what I said, out loud to the computer, was, "Are you fucking kidding me?") Anyway, Debbie Stoller, editor of Bust magazine and the author of the Stitch 'n Bitch books is hosting a knitting workshop. In Tuscany. What the hell?

From the (incredibly ugly and amateurish) website:
"Join Debbie Stoller for a fabulous week of knitting, travel and culture in the heart of Italy! The medeival [sic] hill town of Cortona, setting of the film "Under the Tuscan Sun", will be our base as we enjoy the comraderie [sic] of fellow knitters while exploring the art of knitting among the chocolates, foods, wines, culture, fashion, landscape and people of Tuscany and Umbria!"

Yeah, those neo-feminist bad girls are so into Under the Tuscan Sun. I don't see the Cheryl Crow singalong on the itinerary.

Price: $2449.00 plus airfare and transportation from Florence or Rome.
