View Full Version : Funny Knitting Situation

03-24-2008, 11:52 PM
A few nights ago I accidentally found myself knitting in a small bar next door to the truckstop where I had parked.

I was talking with another driver who was asking about my knitting and I mentioned that one fringe benefit of KIP was that it almost always seems to attract attention from the fairer sex.

He thought I was pulling his leg about that but after about an hour three different women had come over to chat with me about my knitting.

His comment after I finished chatting with the third one? "I need to learn how to knit." :rofl:

I also love to read your stories on the road. You just got another trucker on the way to knitting. :roflhard: They never believe until it happens that the ladies will ask you about your knitting. Which happens to be great.:notworthy: By the way how is the vest coming along?

That is funny. You had better start carrying spare yarn and needles for any of the men who would like some extra attention. You could get a party going.

So many men just don't get it... glad to see you are spreading the word! I can see it now, Mason's cross country knitting club- find your nearest pub and bring your needles and yarn!

Cool, you are changing the face of knitting as you drive cross crounty! I can't tell you how many times I told my dh about you, he NEEDS TO KNIT (he's a worrier)

I said it before, I'll say it again:

Knitting (in a guy's hands) is a "chick magnet"!

If you were my man, I would ban you from knitting in public! :teehee:

As it is...knit on, dear brother! :guyknitting:

I met 3 fellow knitters at a coffee shop the other day while the kids were Rowing in the harbor. The conversation came around to guy knitters, and one lady mentioned that that was a better chick magnet than a dog. I knew one of the others from my rainbow Pot Luck Dinners and said "I have a Dog AND I knit, neither one is working. we were all laughing so hard the coffee girl came over to see if we were ok.
