Katy Perry…Crocheter or Poser??

In the “news” – the pop culture kind – articles have been saying the Katy Perry has taken up crochet. Before I launch into this I should say I’m not Katy Perry’s biggest fan. I’ve heard her peppy grating music almost every morning over and over at work and it has left me with strong dislike. If I have to hear “Roar” one more time…ugh. And can someone please tell her that Kelly Clarkson just did a song like that. I do however think everyone should take up a yarn craft! I just think before you go spouting off about it you, Katy Perry, should at least get the terms correct!

In this article Katy talks about how she is like a nana for taking up crochet. A nana! Please! I am far from a nana. And if you look around any of the blogs or Ravelry it’s quickly noticeable that lots of non-nanas crochet and make fabulous non-nana like items. After she talks about that she tells us what she is working on…she is knitting a baby blanket for her niece. I don’t know about you but this is how I feel about that…

Ohhhh, Katy, I think maybe you don’t know what you’re talking about. On her instagram there is a picture of hooks and yarn. Yarn that looks to me to be Caron Simply Soft. If she has taken up crochet someone needs to teach her about quality yarn. Not that I don’t use and enjoy Caron Simply Soft but I’m on a budget. If I had her kind of money natural fibers here I come!! Oh the yarn I would buy with her kind of money…I have a yarn room – instead of a squished yarn corner!
Ok, really, I’m happy for anyone who takes up yarning.  I was just eye-rolling as I read the articles. LOL.
