Do you knit?

Today I was at work, where the heat seems to be inadequate to deal with sustained negative temps.

I was wearing a turtleneck, flannel shirt, denim jumper, tights and the following items:


sox and allie

and wrapped in a huge pi shawl, and a new coworker asked me “Do you knit?”

I wonder what gave it away?

    1. They already do! But I have a rule – they have to buy the yarn, and it can’t be cheap icky stuff. So, they seldom ask. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have one coworker who gets it, and when she can afford yarn, I make her things. Another one can’t afford any yarn at all, so I occasionally knit a gift for her. The rest of them think I am a yarn snob, and so don’t ask. They might be right. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it was genuine interest, not a criticism of my crazy mismatched dress style. ๐Ÿ™‚ Turns out, she also does knitting and crocheting. I gave her non-verbal permission to dress warmly if nto fashionably at work. Especially when the darned office doesn’t get over 60 degrees. ๐Ÿ™‚

A Note From Abroad

โ€œTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnโ€™t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.โ€ ~ Mark Twain
