I rarely knit in public. Other than knitters who find my knitting method odd, I'm usually meet with indifference.

Knitting on the plane
When I travel I usually knit on the airplane. One day I was knitting and one of the stewardess asked me if I could help them with something she was knitting. I said OK and spent about 2 hours teaching her how to fix her knitting and do the pattern she needed. She was very grateful we finished just as we landed.

My first knitting/crocheting in public experiences were in high school. People would ask me "What're you making now" a lot. Some people would want to try to knit some. And then they'd drop a stitch or something and I'd be annoyed because I didn't know how to fix it back then lol. After that my experiences have been pretty positive. Usually someone comments on how what I'm making is pretty, or I'll get some curious looks.

I sometimes notice, if I'm knitting on a bus or train, the person next to me gazes over and watches for a few seconds - and I find myself doing the same thing when I end up next to a knitter
