Following on from what Sue said, it's funny because I had this conversation with somebody sitting beside me on the bus the other day. I've knitted all my life, and one of my best friends knits a lot too. Any time any of her kids wanted something, they didn't find a pattern, they just described what they wanted. Anyway, her second son was always very arty and has for some years been a professional cartoonist and illustrator. One day my friend recounted how she'd had a phone call from him a few days previously, and he'd wanted to apologise for something. She couldn't think what - it turned out he'd always taking knitting for granted as just a "mum" thing, and something had opened his eyes to how it really was an art form.
