This past Saturday I met my younger sister, Emily, for coffee and knitting at a local coffee shop. I was excited, it was finally an opportunity to sit down, relax, knit and chat.
So, there I am, knitting away and there is Em, knitting away, all was peachy. Except every time a cute guy came into the coffee shop Em's knitting dashed under the table to hide. It was hilarious!
"Em, what's up with the knitting?" I asked her. "I'm embarrassed to knit in public." OH MY! I nearly died laughing. I have never given it much thought. Of course I'm going to knit in public. Who cares what people think. If I have a chance to sit down, I'm going to knit - I've got a lot to knit.
Em ended up joining me in my laughter. I think she too saw how silly it is to be embarrassed about knitting in public. But, no matter, I love her anyway.
Do any of you have issues with knitting in public?
