A description of the experience
Alice Through the Looking Glass
'Are you a child or a teetotum?' the Sheep said, as she took up another pair of needles. 'You'll make me giddy soon, if you go on turning round like that.' She was now working with fourteen pairs at once, and Alice couldn't help looking at her in great astonishment.
'How CAN she knit with so many?' the puzzled child thought to herself. 'She gets more and more like a porcupine every minute!'
'Can you row?' the Sheep asked, handing her a pair of knitting-needles as she spoke…………..
'Feather!' cried the Sheep, as she took up another pair of needles……………….
'Feather! Feather!' the Sheep cried again, taking more needles. 'You'll be catching a crab directly.'
'A dear little crab!' thought Alice. 'I should like that.'
'Didn't you hear me say "Feather"?' the Sheep cried angrily, taking up quite a bunch of needles.
'In the water, of course!' said the Sheep, sticking some of the needles into her hair, as her hands were full. 'Feather, I say!'.
'WHY do you say "feather" so often?' Alice asked at last, rather vexed.
'I'm not a bird!'
'You are,' said the Sheep: 'you're a little goose.'
