On Knitting

The CS Monitor has a short article on knitting: "A ball of yarn, two needles, and a latte."
This city's first knitting cafe [Knit New York], where old and new intersect, manages to capture perfectly the mood of the current knitting craze. It has long been associated with grandmothers and stodgy, functional designs, but now younger, savvier women are being swept up by the possibilities of knit cellphone cozies and cashmere ponchos. Across the country, knitting cafes are providing them places to buy instructional books and beverages - and creating communities where a difficult stitch can be explained or a complex pattern unraveled.
Well, you don't have to go to New York for knitting and eating delights; a back yard in Pasadena will do just as well. (See the May 14 entry at Path to Freedom.)

Hmmmm, maybe I should reconsider my musings from a while back?
