So I might take up knitting. I like the scarf that DG's ex-girlfriend made for him, and wouldn't mind having one of my own. Then I started reading The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs, and noticed knitting directions in the back. So you can make a scarf. It must be fate. (There was also a muffin recipe).
It seems like a good book, and Julia Roberts is going to star in the movie version.
I'm not sure whether I'll really get into knitting or not, but I like the idea. D pointed out that all my hobbies involve media (books, movies, CDs) or exercise (yoga and Pilates). Knitting strikes me as similar to playing the guitar in terms of manual dexterity, and I gave up guitar after a brief attempt many years ago. But we'll see. I'd like to knit a rosy sweater and scarf.
