"Impossible" is not in my vocabulary. I remember wanting a "Knitting for Barbie" kit as a girl of 8. My parents told me that didn't make sense since I didn't know how to knit and neither did anyone in my family. So, I took toothpicks and string to school and asked my friend to teach me. She did -- and I got my wish!
