Yarn Harlot Threatens Legal Action Against the Lumpy Sweater

 In my recent post I asked if knitters were just part of a hive mind mentality.  I discussed the Yarn Harlot blog among other things—the single most popular knitting blog on the ‘net. I asked if open and honest criticism was taboo.

 Apparently, it is.

 Just today, I was contacted by Stephanie McFee’s lawyer, advising me that if I did not take down or delete my post, which discussed a recent incident on her blog, that a suit for slander would immeaditely be filed against me. I also also advised that in the future, I should refrain from such slurs on her character,

 However, I’m telling everyone this, so everyone will know what she really is.

 I’m telling you this….



because I just loooove a good April Fools prank.

Happy April First, everyone!
