"...take thy lace knitting project to knit night and expect to be able to work on it and talk at the same time. Expecteth to spend thy two hours knitting and frogging, knitting and tinking, and thy lifeline dropping out, and get into such a pickle as to have to froggeth the whole sorry mess the next morn anyway. Praise be that you were only 30 rows in!
Thou ought to sticketh to thy simple intarsia project next week. Learn thy lesson well!"
