By jove, I did it!

Yesterday I managed to conquer one of my secret fears. I was on the bus going home from work and I had read the paper, my iPod battery was flat and I had nothing to do. So after some time of debating with myself, I psyched myself up and I did it...I knit in public!!!

And no-one saw me and backed away s-l-o-w-l-y, called the police, stared and looked away then furtively looked back again or anything. Someone even sat next to me as if I was a normal person! So I figure I might even do it again...

See, it is NOT a heinous offecnce to knit (or even crotchet hich is easier to do in a confined space such as a bus) in public! Knitting and crotcheting is COOL I tell you.

Well done Rose Red - I am proud of you!

I should have mentioned - it was a sock, so relatively easy to knit in confined space. Don't know about the crochet thing though - that is still a bit too granny for me...
