    Post About a book

    Hello,
    I'm translating a children's book of Canada.
    I can't understand this orange sentence.
    Could you help me?
    Something was fishy here all right, something was going on, but trying to figure out what was like trying to knit a pair of socks with only two strands of wool. (Olivier could knit, by the way, which is more than you can say for your average, garden-variety hero.)
    your average=garden-variety hero??
    Does this sentence mean that olivier can knit better than garden-variety hero??
    could you rephrase this easily??
    Thank you for your help

    "Garden-variety" means "ordinary".
