Yesterday I was out running errands on my lunch break (wearing this) and someone asked…
"Did you knit your little top?"
"Yes, I did."
I thought about this all day yesterday because it actually bugged me. It bugged me because this lady didn't know I was a knitter so why would she ask if I knit my top? It made me feel like my top looked homemade. I don't want my clothes to look homemade. It brought my knitting confidence down a bit…
I mean, it's one thing when a friend of family member says, "Hey, did you knit that?" — They know you well enough and know you are a knitter and they actually expect you to say, "Yes." (Actually, if someone that knows I'm a knitter asks me if I knit something and I didn't I almost feel like a sell-out but that is a whole other story!).
What I'm getting at here is as a pretty experienced knitter I want someone to stop me in my tracks and say…
"Love that! Where did you get it?"
"Oh thanks, it was a lot of fun to make."
"You mean… you knit that???"
"Yes I did. I love to knit."
"Wow! I thought it like cost a small fortune or something! Very cool!"
I don't think this is this is too much to hope for, do you? I mean, do you hear me knitters??? ;)
