Well, I had a fun experience today. Today was Terrific Tuesday for our church. Basically, it’s a day camp, each Tuesday, for K-6. I go as a leader. We were going to a ropes course. I don’t do that kind of thing, as I don’t think they have anyone strong enough to hold me up! Anyway, I took a sock to work on.
I’m knitting away, walking around (using my lovely Monkey bag!) and I can’t tell you how many times someone asked me what I was making.
“A sock” I say. “People knit socks?” “Why?”
One lady kept asking me why, then had the audacity to pull up my pant leg to see what kind of socks I was wearing!
I say to her “Well, I’m not wearing wool socks today, since it’s 100 degrees in the shade!”
Most people were polite, but this same lady just couldn’t get over that I waste my time knitting socks. She kept coming back and asking why.
Her friend came over and in apology said “She’s from Orange County”.
Well, that explains it, I guess. (not sure how, but oh well)
So, I’m done. I’m going back upstairs to knit my sock. Stupid me.
