Knitting Porn?

Today I took myself and my knitting out to visit Ed and Erin. There was tea and biscuits and Monster House and stash fondling. I showed Ed how to do long tail and cable cast ons, and I briefly showed him how to crochet.

It always strikes me how easy things are when you *know* how to do them, the way things become second nature. How to hold work, how to hold hooks, yarn and needles, how to move your hands and fingers. It seems almost unimaginable that you were once not able to do these things, that what you do so instinctively now, ever seemed alien and strange. Yet eventually there you are, on autopilot, watching tv and not even looking at your work. People are amazing creatures.
