Sunday afternoon my husband and I went to one of those movie theaters that’s a drafthouse so you can order drinks and food right at your chairs. We finally decided to see the Entourage movie (we used to watch the show) and it was an opportunity for us to get out of the house. I realized, my husband didn’t even bat an eye at me when I pulled out my Boothbay sweater in the theater to keep working on the collar (hello 5 inches of garter stitch!) during the movie.
I will knit anywhere.
I knit in coffee shops, movie theaters, waiting in line, waiting at the doctor’s office, on the subway and always in the car. It is rare that I don’t have a knitting project with me 90% of the time. Plus I’ve got project bags of all shapes and sizes (and have turned things that aren’t project bags into project bags because I saw their true potential) so why not take it with me?
And yet I hear people say they’re embarrassed to knit in public. Why? I’ve been stopped by people to ask what I’m making or where I learned to knit. One day in a coffee shop while I was waiting for my mom a guy saw me knitting and told me about this amazing hat his girlfriend in high school knit for him. They broke up a long time ago but he seemed to really miss that hat…and maybe her too. LOL
So is it just me? Or do you knit everywhere you go too? And if you are afraid to knit in public, why? I’m just curious.
