Ha! Lots of comments to that last one!
Lynne, sorry I did not catch your look, as I had to look at my hands when she said that. I didn't want to say anything and be "that kid" as our class seems to have enough all ready! I think I would have felt better though if I had!
Ingrid, the thing was she *did* know how lucky she was to have the silk garden, which is why she refused to knit a scarf. She knew she wouldn't wear it and wanted something really nice out of it that she would use. But that only took 2 skeins...
Keely-- (KEELY!) It's not the new knitters so much, as you can tell them anything and mold them in your own likeness. (Insert evil laugh) It's the crochety knitters. It's the knitters who don't want to grow. It's the knitters that can't think for themselves. But more than anything? It's the flat-out bitches.
