Have a look at the FAQs, the Ship's Ten Commandments but especially the various Board headings and guidelines. Hell is for rants, vitriol and anger and your post exhibits none of those features.

To tell the truth I haven't a clue what board it should be on. Oh yes, I know where it should be: on your blog. The Ship is for interaction and with the exception of the TICTH thread it is not for posts unrelated to any other.

Thread closed.

Clearly posted as a warning against the tendency to regard John the Baptist as the Christ. It certainly stopped me dead in my tracks.

Anyway, knitting. Knitting's terribly interesting, isn't it?
You can make stuff with knitting.

Like jumpers.

And hats. Usually those sort of bobble hats without bobbles on them.

And hot-water-bottle covers.
