I was shocked that this guy knew enough about fibers that he recognized that I wasn't using sheep wool. I told him it was alpaca and he checked it out, felt it, etc. while explaining that he used to raise llamas.
First of all...I love how you accidentally ended up in a pub. I "accidentally" do lots of stuff too.
Secondly...I think it's great that he approached you. Because that is exactly the kind of guy who would probably be uncomfortable approaching one of us ladies to have the same conversation. I think that's awesome!
(And a big dorky thumbs up for you, just because I feel like it.)
