No Idle Hands
"As incentives for knitting, pleasure has preveiled over duty; fashion has triumphed over thrift; relaxation has edged out industry; creativity has outranked knitting-by-the-book; "working with my hands" long ago nosed out "fear of the devil". The old saw of idle hands becoming the devil's playground fades to a memory, revived with a chunkle by this stanza from "Grandma Says," a 1986 poem:
Say, "You'll never find me submittin'
You irk me, I find
So get thee behind
And please don't disturb me-I'm knittin'."
And that's what I am going to do this weekend - have a good one.
