observations on knitting

Observed this last week:

Knitting is an excellent accompaniment to somebody else’s piano lesson. 

Knitting is a less successful accompaniment to a movie with subtitles.


I am an English-style knitter and all future attempts to try to speed-knit Continental-style should be abandoned before they begin.

I don't knit anymore, but when I did, I remember feeling very attached to my Continental style. I felt very outnumbered!

Maybe trends have changed. I feel outnumbered at my knitting circle by all the cool Continental kids! I might do a count next time...
