You know what I love more than just about anything else? Somebody who has found something which helps them to live their best life at zero cost to other people. You know what I love even more than that? Those same people giving zero fucks about the haters. This guy on TikTok, Combat Crochet, has my admiration and respect. And the fact that he uses what he knows to help others is just icing on the cake...

It's amazing to me that people actually take time out of their busy days to leave hate comments on people's social media when they are doing NOTHING to hurt anybody. Senseless... and just plain mean.
Which pretty much defines our society now-a-days, but I don't have to like it.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
I think it’s great that he found something that not only helps him, but others. Now if I knew him personally, like we were friends, I’d give him shit for crocheting, but we’d both know I didn’t mean it. Vet buddies will find ANYTHING to make fun of each other, but that’s between themselves. Don’t make the mistake of thinking interpersonal shit-slinging as permission to wade on in with an outside opinion because we generally circle the wagons and will destroy the outsiders! It does make me wonder though if people do somehow get off on being online assholes. I bet they wouldn’t say those same things in person and I don’t see the return on investment shit-posting online.
Also, a little jealous because a couple decades ago I had an old lady at work who was willing to teach me to crochet and knit and I didn’t take her up on the offer.
He’s got quite a following on TikTok… that would be the place!
20 years ago I didn’t have as many time-sucking hobbies as I have now……
I have less hobbies now than I’ve ever had… though now that the charity I worked with is gone, some of my time freed up.
