I would never use the word 'cruel' to describe my sensay. It's obvious that they people live in the stone ages. Get with the program people! Knitting is hip!


Perhaps it is the fact that she knits in a wine shop, mired in conspiracies while you are knitting in a pub being haragnued by a disgruntled Irishman. The secondary parallels being the presence of alcohol and disgruntlement.


I used to take my knitting to school when I was in high school, and there was more than one person who called me Madame Defarge. Probably back then it had something to do with having recently read the book, but I imagine it is probably the only "character" reference most people would know (heck, it might be the only one I can think of off the top of my head!).

I do appreciate the subtlety described in Sis's comment above, although that is probably more thought than went into the original remark.
