I came across this comment from a high flying and widely travelled female executive in the upper echelons of the US government :
'Knit? Damn right I knit. If I didn't knit I'd kill someone.'
Reminded me of Gabriel Garcia Marquez' comment in, I think, Love in The Time of Cholera, that we have dinner parties to keep us from murdering each other.
So knitting and food are really important....keep up the blogs!
