I think I want to learn how to knit. Forget the fact that all the celebs have taken it up, I just feel like my life might be enhanced somehow if I could make a jaunty scarf or a very small blanket. I'm not one for artsy crafty things, but there is something therapeutic about the click-clacking sound of knitting needles. I'm fascinated by my mother-in-law's ability to expertly loop yarn around a finger and perform mysterious movements with knitting needles without even looking. I like the idea of a quiet moment in front of the television, click-clacking away after a very long and demanding day. Some people do puzzles to relax. Some have been swept up by Soduku-mania. Some people drink heavily. Me, I want to make tea cosies.

I'm still cool though, right?
