I tried knitting at work and it was worse than knitting at the mall waiting for the children to finish shopping. The interruptions caused me so many mistakes on a sweater I was knitting that I frogged it and made caps.

This is the deal, when you knit in public, you spend most of your time talking to people who know nothing about knitting about... knitting. So, instead of knitting you're just talking about it. Why bother, unless you have trouble starting conversation and you're dying to chat with someone? Do you see my point?

However, I would love to knit with other knitters in public, because we would all understand and could talk while knitting and not get hurt if someone was being quiet while counting stitches. And, if history serves, we would be talking about anything BUT knitting.
