Why I knit, #32

Because I am never bored, as long as I remember my knitting.

Yep. So we went to get an emissions test, and while we waited we stood outside in the sun, which was lovely, and I started to get bored. And I thought to myself, “Self, I wish we had something to do.” And lo and behold, I had had the presence of mind to stuff my knitting in my purse, and I got three rows done while waiting. Sadly, the camera died before I could get any detail shots, but the photo above is indeed proof that I am still a knitter and that it occasionally is useful, above and beyond warm toes in a drafty old house.

The next day was  my birthday, and there was much eating of foreign food (so much food; remind me that all-you-can-eat-thali plus lassis plus japanese is an uncomfortable me the next morning), and my husband bought me the most lovely sari from Raneez Boutique. I will share a photo, but the choli is in the process of being stitched and you really don’t get a feel for how lovely it is without the choli. I will share as soon as I’ve got both pieces. Thanks to the CG and Jennie (plus their SOs) for sharing my birthday with me!

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
