Do you knit in public? Was anyone offended/incredibly happy/curious that you were doing so?
Absolutely! I’ve mentioned before that I go to a Thursday Knitting group through Meetup and we meet at a Le Boulanger. We try to get the biggest table they have because we can have up to 14 people. We get questions all the time…and even some requests from time to time for consignment pieces. Everyone in the group is very friendly and we all love talking about our passion.
I also knit at wineries (when we stop to enjoy a bottle and a picnic), doctor/dentist offices, in nursing homes / at the hospital, in the airport / on planes, while waiting in line for concerts, in the DMV, while talking at our book club…pretty much anywhere that I am waiting or have some time and can still talk to others.
I get a lot of people who ask if I’m crocheting and what’s the difference between crochet and knitting. I do both, so it’s easy to talk about. I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone that has been offended…just curious and wondering if they could pick up needles too to pass some time while waiting.
Maybe you should play this game the next time you knit in public? I think I’ve heard each and every one of these and it sounds like lots of fun!
