Post The fine art of knitting.

I dont know anything about knitting. Its not because i have some sort of difficulty learning about it, its just that it takes time. besides, what kind of skill is knitting in todays high-tech world?

very much like boat making.

I can knit. I was in the hospital for nine weeks a couple of years back, and someone taught me. I made a blanket and bootie. Then I got out and haven't touched it since. It's actually really easy once you know how. And very calming, almost meditative.

Well see, there's the culture point fairy. His name is Paint CHiPS, and sprinkles his fairy dust on you, and suddenly you have a point.

It's a long and involved procedure...far more dificult than it sounds, mostly because of the crap you have to go through to get the fairy's attention. He's usually too bust typing novel-length rants to notice you, unless you show him your tits.

All kidding aside...one of the mods is in charge of culture points. You said something somewhere that got that mod's attention and approval, so you got the point. Nothing all that unusual. Evan I have a point or two somewhere.

knitting is like math. you don't need to know how to do it if you have a calculator.

Why would you not need to know how to knit if you have a calculator? I don't get it.

In russia they dont even have calculators.
Back in the 60's they had to march for 5 hours in the snow all the way from Krasnoslobodsk, just to subtract.

Thats why they are so good at math and knitting warm clothing.
