You know what they say about idle hands.

Got six minutes to spare? You can learn to knit.

Begin now (6:05).

As an added bonus (a redundancy if I ever saw one), you will also learn how to bore yourself silly.

According to a woman in New Zealand, though, your new skill will help reverse global warming climate change and dramatically decrease seismic activity.

If you don’t believe me, take it up with her.

Whatever you do, though, once you've started, don’t stop knitting.

The planet is counting on you.


  1. I might go back and watch the part titled "Binding Off" since that's the step I didn't learn in the 5th grade, and...
    the reason that
    to this day,
    I do not knit,
    I crochet.

  2. Hey! Wot's all this then? Rude beggar. :-)
    Oh, has that 'thing' arrived in the mail yet Robert? Hope so, because I sent it ages ago...

    WV is 'Pretan' which means to mindlessly knit and thereby forget one's environmental concerns.

  3. Pleng will be landing at Atlanta airport on Friday afternoon - 7.22pm. I have told her you'll be there to meet her and assist her with US immigration paper work. I am afraid she doesn't knit.

  4. But Pat, do you tat?

    Katherine, that "thing" did arrive and I thank you for it and have sent you an e-mail. For the curious, it was a painting of grapes.

    Pudding, you have misled poor Pleng, I'm afraid. The last thing I need is two laundresses. She will have to fill out her own US immigration paper work, beginning with finding a sponsor.

  5. My hands are not idle
    and neither's my brain,
    so here I am, pronto
    to say thanks again
    for my birthday ditty
    that you penned for Pen,
    so clever and witty!
    Please do call again!
