Yesterday while … oh, never mind… I came across this website with perhaps the perfect title: The Idler.
Who couldn’t love a magazine with the following mission statement?
The Idler is a bi-annual, book-shaped magazine that campaigns against the work ethic….
The intention of the magazine is to return dignity to the art of loafing, to make idling into something to aspire towards rather than reject.
Sign me up! It seems that I may just finally have found my people. My true people. The loafers, layabouts, idlers, etc. etc.
So if you’re in the mood to laze around and surf the net, check it out. I recommend in particular the mini-essays on crap jobs for a wee chuckle.
What’s that? You insist on keeping me busy? Well, here’s another craft for you all to take up:
Come on – you know you want a fancy macrame swing coat!!! Wouldn’t these be ultra-fabulous with the Swarovski crystal yarn? (Thanks to Jay for the photo!)
Well, I must confess I’m feeling rather pedestrian these days, actually. So, I’ve resorted to starting work on the Seascape pattern from the latest Knitty magazine.
I’m using that fabulous blueberry seasilk I got in Nova Scotia. So far, so guid.
Happy loafing Tuesday!
