ellen_fremedon leaks crafting secrets!

Knitting does come with a license to kill, but we're only licensed to kill crocheters. (And crocheters are only licensed to kill knitters.)

Most local yarn shops are the turf of one group or another, but a few LYS proprietors pay enough protection money to both sides to maintain their stores as neutral ground.

For serious rumbles, both sides used to meet in the Michael's yarn isle, but now the whole store is scrapbooker turf and they protect it with X-Acto knives, so now we have to throw down behind the sheep barns at the county fairgrounds.

Context really gets down to the knitty-gritty of the situation.
