Can I gripe for just a moment? Answered
Recently I spent about a week drafting a pattern and sewing prototypes for what would be my Where the Wild Things are hat. I spent a day putting a PDF pattern together. I spent a good chunk of time simplifying the process to make it easy for everyone to sew one.
I took a lot of pictures because I love the hat and I'm really proud of it.
And what happens?
A ton of nonsense comments (I counted at 10+) about what I look like, rather than the actual project. Not to mention a few PMs I read and then never responded to.
I'm going to go flag my heart out now. I thought about just leaving it be at first, but the longer they sit there the more annoyed I get.
And this ends my "I hate being a girl on the internets" gripe.
