A Priceless Moment

This happened at this year’s Viable Paradise, I believe on Friday.

Me: Teresa, have you ever noticed that knitting is a lot like literary criticism?

TNH (staring): Yes, but how does a non-knitter know that?

Me: I just assumed.

When Lisa read her paper on Apprenticeship in the work of Ellen Kushner, she was told (I think by Delia) “writing a literary paper is like socking an octopus — and that was a very well socked octopus!”

You just assumed? I thought it was because of your frequent opportunities to observe the Madame Defarge Literary Criticism and Fiber Arts Society in action.

Despite being a knitter, I don’t actually understand the connection. Is it people commenting on the knitted item, or the patience of sitting and working through both the comments and the knitting, or…?
