Knitting Psycho: O.K. here's the deal.....when you are in public and see someone knitting...what is the FIRST thought that crosses your mind? Do you think Ahhhh.......knit sister or do you think....DANGER, get away FAST??!!! Do you walk up and introduce yourself? What do you do when you run across a fellow knitter???
I have N.E.V.E.R. EVER felt threatened.....have you???? I sort of think if you knit you are "one of us"...even if I don't know you......you are a KNITTER for crying out loud and we are all sisters of the Fiberhood!!!!
Sunday I was sitting in the cell phone parking lot at the airport, waiting to pick up my sister, knitting away on a sock when a car pulls up next to me. I continued to knit, occasionally glancing up to check the arrival board. Something caught my eye......a movement with a little flash of silver....I look over and THERE......sitting RIGHT NEXT to me in the Cell Phone Parking Lot.....is a KNITTER.....my unknown sister of the Knitsterhood.......knitting what appears to be the beginnings of possibly a vest or sweater on knitpicks needles!! Immediately I felt the need to make my knitting presence known.....so I waived....she looks over....I raise my sock knitting and smiled. She looked at me like I had lost my mind.....sort of weakly smiling at me...then quickly put her car in drive and LEFT!!!!!!!!!
Now.....I would LIKE to think that her party had arrived....but I didn't see her answer her cell phone......just looked at me and hit the high road!!!
I sat in utter shock for a minute, then I got so tickled I couldn't help but laugh!!! I know I didn't have much make-up on....and I do look rather pale and scary without any....but come ON.....I was Knitting for goodness sake!!!!!
Hmmm......maybe she was intimidated by my sock knitting!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!
