And that, of course, begs the question: If it's "so easy" why don't you do it yourself? Why did you ask me at all?
I don't know why people don't think this one through before they ask.
Because people don't see you using a hard-won talent. They see you using some mad mystical skills. For some reason, people are more likely to admire "Spiderman" (who needed one radioactive bite) than some ninja who trains for ten years.
I have had people say, "Oh, I tried to learn how to knit, but I can't do it like you." I even had someone tell me, "One day I sat down and decided not to get up until I could knit very well but seven hours later my arms hurt too much and I still wasn't good."
I learned to knit because I saw my teacher making a gorgeous lacy sweater and was blown away. I couldn't knit for the first year I knit. But I knit every day for at least twenty minutes. I did that for eight years and didn't knit anything decent during that time. When I was in college I made the habit of knitting for an hour each night (while watching Star Trek) because I had to unwind somehow. That continued for awhile and then I could make basic hats and stuff that weren't so ugly. Then I got a job and for the most part have commuted via public transport because I have lived in large cities. That was more knitting time.
I didn't do complex lace work or over-the-top cables until I had been knitting for fifteen years. I finally made myself a gorgeous lacy sweater after knitting for twenty years. (My parents really wish I had decided to be concert pianist or something impressive, but whatever.)
That is one of the reasons why this particular topic is one of my pet peeves. Because they aren't just asking for time and/or money. It often comes with an attitude of, "Well I'd like to do that but I just don't have that magic that you do." It's an attitude that discounts that I didn't just pick up a "how to" book, I didn't even try it for seven hours. I started out suckier than suck and I practiced thousands and thousands of hours of my life. This does not obligate me to use my talent for any Tom, wingadingdingy or Harry who covets it.
