Handknit Envy

The other day I was walking down the subway platform and I noticed this guy, probably around my age, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, staring at me in the most peculiar way. My first thought – “Oh, he must be jealous of my hand knit Rogue sweater.”

Right. I am sure that is exactly what he was thinking. I think I need to spend a little more time with the non-knitting population; I am losing my grip.

I didn’t get to knit with the Spiders this Friday – I’m so sorry I missed the festivities! JF and I had a dinner that was not to be missed, and could not be rescheduled. I hope everyone had a great time.

What? That sounds perfectly reasonable to me!

Ha! That reminds me of the time in my life when we got the first 3-D Nintendo. I would be walking down the street and think 'I could totally do a back flip off that wall onto the el platform like Mario.'

OCD, anyone?

Sorry you couldn't make it too!! It was a nice time, but sad. And don't worry about the crazy guy staring at you... it is NY after all!

Something happened yesterday that made me think of this post: Hayden and I were walking home from school, and as I looked at his sweater and my poncho, I said to him, "Wow, isn't this cool? I'm wearing Rowan All Seasons Cotton, and so are you!" Like he noticed. Like he cared. :-)
