Voodoo is the best medicine

I know this really great lady. She got laid off this week because her company is full of agist, sexist assholes. I sent her the care package you see on the left there. I feel that nothing can bring joy to your heart so much as an effigy of a person that wronged you so that you might do unspeakable horrors to it in hopes that they die a slow painful death. Hey, the healing process is different for all of us, okay?

Anyway the pattern is Bad Juju from the anticraft and I truly hated this pattern. I will not make it again. I will however make more voodoo dolls because they amuse me. I will write my own pattern to do it though because, as I mentioned, I hated this pattern.

You are a great friend, that is exactly what someone who was just abused by The Man needs. A little vengeance in knitting form and chocolate. Fantastic!

What a great care package. Chocolate and pins. In any other combination that might make mom confiscate the Halloween candy.

I didn't care much for the pattern either--the gusset holes left in the armpits and crotch were huge! Or maybe I'm just a crappy knitter!

No, it wasn't just you. My issue with it was that the pattern wasn't written very well. It gave vague instruction and didn't give stitch counts in the way I'm used to. I also didn't like that it didn't look like anything until I was done with it, how can you tell if you're doing it right if it just looks like a blob?

You're still a pimp *wink*

Really, in all seriousness it's wonderful how you're supporting your friend.

*hugs*

What a fantastic care package. I'm sure she'll love it.

I thought the pattern was written in an odd way too.

At least you finished it, despite it's accident with the wee one.

That's ultra cool! I bet it makes getting fired worthwhile!

That's so cool you did that for your friend! She's lucky to have your support.

I wish her the best. Maybe something much better will happen in her life now.
