(Do you?) When my daughter started her preschool classes this fall, I decided that most days I would stay nearby and use that quiet time to work on knitting. So I started hitting up local coffee shops and busting out the knitting bag. It's my time, and I admit that after 3.5 years of stay-at-home momming with my favorite kiddo, it's a little bit of a treat to have a couple of hours to myself, two days a week.
But the comment I get the most often? 'You look a little bit young to be doing that.' Or 'It's nice to see a young person knitting.' And that makes me smile. I tell them that there's a big resurgence in the craft scene these days and that lots of younger people are taking up knitting and sewing and embroidery. And I tell them that I teach knitting classes to a younger generation each fall/winter. They seem glad to hear it. And I'm glad to tell them. I like it. I like knitting in public.
