4.12.2017 There are many knitting advices in my text already: loops, socks, mittens, counting, figures, threads, work rythm, planning & correcting errors, etc
My opinion is that since computers are mechanical, kind of stupid, and knitting has the same fault too, there isn't much that one could learn by knitting. But on the other hand if one knits figures or pictures, then there is the sma that like a computer does, one knits for a certain time on a certain colour and then according to some rule it ends on some row at a certain point and one continues with another colour, like a computer with another task or another phace of the same task. One the next row one often knits with the same colours, so it too is like a computer having simple tasks from which it mechanically builds the end result, like for example a picture to the computer screen or the text on the screen. One can also learn work habits: how do I rise above the stupid level to produce something fine, which of course usually goes carried by other more complex and wise areas of life. There is also the fact that even though the task itself is simple and does not give rise to any fine thinking, it is important to think through ways of doing and ways of working, work habits and planning phaces with a good understanding about life, skills and ways of doing at large, endurancy, motivation, comfortability at work etc, plus also about whether one oneself wants to spend lots of time in such tasks and how one should communicate about whether one likes knitting or not.
This is like with computer programming and using computers: people have common sense views and emotionally motivated goals, even wider wisdom about what is good in the society and in the world, and so starting according to their own common sense, they can reach good results! It is in a way an easy task for them. But if they drown in studying computer programming or what others have done with computers before and what is possible already and what not, they lose their own insight, their own common sense and are much more stupid, and so the computer professions are kind of stuck. Some also make the rror of thinking that since computers are a new area of life one would not need to follow civilized ways in connection with them, but civilized ways are wise, they offer solutions, that is why they exist and are valued, and such solutions are on a generallevel that very often applies to computers too and to the modern world, if one just is good enough in civilized objkective thinking.
