Re: “Caffe Trieste

"Since it doesn't require as much time, patience, or dexterity as, say, making flower arrangements, spackling a roof, or cleaning your own house..."


Not to insult flower arrangers, roof spacklers (whatever that might mean) or cleaners but this is just the most ridiculous sentence I have ever read.

Has the writer of this article ever seen a piece of knitted clothing, let alone seen anyone knit anything?

Even a simple pair of fingerless mittens or a plain scarf will take several evenings for most knitters. Some intricate knitted items can take a month or more to complete. I can slap together a flower arrangement (hardly florist quality, but whatever) in about 15 minutes!

DOH!
