Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I note with interest the comment that this posting is 3 years old, as I found it when searching for events taking place between the 26th of November, and the 4th of December, 2009. However, its age does not detract from its offensiveness.
"Since it doesn't require as much time, patience, or dexterity as, say, making flower arrangements, spackling a roof, or cleaning your own house..."
Are you people that ignorant? Have you ever knitted a lace shawl with 6,000 #8 glass beads attached one by one with a .75 mm crochet hook? Well, I have, and I can tell you that it takes more time, patience, and dexterity than any of the alternates listed in the above quote.
Snideness about knitting is merely disguised jealousy and ignorance. May you be forced to wear bullet-proof acrylic for the rest of your life, never knowing the softness, warmth and comfort of silk, cashmere, alpaca, and merino.
