there is an Aztec legend that the god of music and poetry took the form of a hummingbird and descended into the underworld to make love with a goddess, who then gave birth to the first flower

Knitting? HAH! I can do knitting any time. It doesn't take long, just take one big hole and put a bit of wool round the edges. That's knitting.

(That stuff that people do where scarves and woollies emerge on the end of two needles, that's magic. You can't fool me)
