You have to know something about embroidery, or the terminology used to describe it, to make out what it says on the bag. Fancy Works.

It's a term I learned recently, and wondered if I would ever put the knowledge to use. I just did.

But I didn't know what a rice stitch is. I do now, though, and while I will never knit anything, I will be able to use the term with a certain amount of confidence if the subject ever comes up, thereby giving the impression of more knowledge than I actually have.

By the way, note the obligatory Distant City, rising from behind the snowdrift, assuring us Scoop does not live in some meaningless black existential void.
