Knitting for Dummies
I hate television, but if my wife, Jacqui, and kids were going to watch it, I wanted to put the passive consumption of media to good use by getting them knitting. And with Knitting For Dummies, a set of needles, and some yarn, Jacqui and my daughter, Ariane, were off to the races. Sure they both made some mistakes on their first pieces. There was a gaping hole knitted in error where that kitty face resides, but Jacqui turned adversity into opportunity with style. By using a pair of scissors, some felt, and thick thread, voila, she created a scarf with a kitty face. Such stylin costs $100 or so in shops on Haight Street here in San Francisco. Creating this scarf took probably 10 hours of television watching not counting the learning curve. So, now our TV is earning us $10 an hour. And hey, weve got unique fashions on our heads and around our warm necks.
