I just was listening to an NPR podcast about Google's top searches. Under the "How to" category, here are the searches for "How to":

1. How to kiss
2. How to draw
3. How to knit
4. How to hack
5. How to dance
6. How to crochet
7. How to meditate
8. How to flirt
9. How to levitate
10. How to skateboard

How cool that knitting ranks third beneath kissing and drawing!

The kissin' I've got down. The knitting, I'm still learning!


She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands... Proverbs 31:13

What's impressive is outranking "How to hack". We know the usual bias in an internet based poll.


I can go loopy, or I can knit. Your choice.

Clara, How to Knit beat out How to Levitate? I must go check out those levitation sites right now. [:00]

Knitting Rocks! As we all know. Let's each help one person learn how to knit in 2008!

Just imagine what a better place this world will be.

Can you really learn to kiss from a computer? I could see how to a few other things with all the videos available, but kissing? That's just weird! I thought it was trial and error and instinct.

**snort** I bet it's not nearly as much fun as learning to kiss with a real person! I'm kind of bummed that Crochet came in 6th!
