Freaky...

I'm not sure how I came across this particular item, but it's too funny! Who would have thought! Apparently this yarn shop is making so much money with it's sock club yarn that the bank through which the transactions were being processed determined that it must be a front for some nefarious activity. Well we all know that yarn is addictive, but really...
Anyway, this is a really great book - first introduced me to the difference between correlation and causality - For instance, women who knit are brighter and better educated than average. Does this fact mean that knitting makes one smarter (causality) or is it simply that bright, well-educated people often choose knitting over other fiber arts for various reasons (correlation) ? In any event, it's a fact that Crazy for Ewe customers are among the brightest and most interesting people anywhere! You can read more about correlation and causality and other interesting statistical discoveries in Freakonomics.
