Oh, okay, just wondering. I'm sixteen, and was just wondering if I'm "too young".
Thanks!

Too young? Heck, no! Obviously, there's no age requirement to post to this site, so as long as you enjoy posting here and find value in doing so, then by all means post away.

I've found that this site is for everyone--females, males, young people, old people, young at heart people, people who never want to grow up, etc, etc.

Our common bond is knitting, and that trumps everything else.

So please keep posting. I enjoy reading your comments/questions, and I'm always thrilled to see everyone's new knitted and crocheted creations!

Good for you! I imagine that's one reason people were looking at you knitting. See people knitting isn't common to begin with and young person even more so! I think it's great that you're knitting and KIP! Maybe you'll bring some more young people to knit!

I've got to tell you this. I was in the transit center waiting for a bus. This teen kid walked in wearing gang attire and looking all bad a*&. He looked like he was asking for trouble, right? He watched me knit for a while and told me that his mother knit. She taught him how. Knitting is fun, he said. lol Just goes to show you can't judge a book by its cover. lol

Well I've been knitting in public quite a bit. Including at work, though I'm told it's distracting to hear "click, click, click" while somebody's on the phone. But since nobody has told me to stop, I'm gonna keep right on doing it. I do have quite a few people stop and watch for a few minutes, then make asinine comments. I usually just smile and nod.
