Strangest comments you have received about your knitting?
I was knitting on a sock today. This lady that I know (who I'll admit is NOT known for her BRIGHT comments) says, "So when you finish with this, you actually wear these?"

Ahhhh, yes!

I get that too. I sorta just want to snap back and say, "Nope, I'm just trying to figure out how to put this darned fishing pole together."
