Learn Hebrew? Sure. No problem. It's easier than it seems. I'm learning to speak, read and write it and like knitting, it's awesome!
Whatever your interest, in knitting or in life........go for it. Not everyone WANTS to learn lace (or Hebrew), do it if you want.
As far as I'm concerned it's only if you DON'T try that you lose. Even if once into it you decide you hate it, say you try entrelac and it's not as hard as it seems, but you decide you're never going to wear those entrelac socks. Frog it! You've learned a new technique and you've proven it's really not hard at all!
That's my next technique to accomplish, BTW. Looks easy!
