Friday night my mom and I went to a wake of a family friend and I took my knitting with me. I know that sounds really bad of me but I knew it was going to be a lot of drama and I needed a way to remove myself from the whole situation. Even with my knitting I still felt a lot of secondhand embarrassment for several people. Anyways, I had been quietly knitting on the second sock while the preacher and family members were speaking and after that part was over everyone started mingling. I can't tell you how many people who I haven't seen in years come up to me asking what was I doing before they even asked me how I was doing. Now I know from previous attempts at knitting in public my knitting seems to draw attention to me no matter where I am so I had thought beforehand that I shouldn't go without the first sock and I'm glad I took it because my sock was passed around to so many people. They were gushing over it. They just kept saying it looked like it had been store bought, they wanted a pair, and they'd pay me. Needless to say, my sock was a hit. My mom was beaming, she's so proud of me.

I forgive you, Jess....

I think its FINE to take your knitting to a wake. Especially if you are planning to be there all day. I certainly wouldnt mind if it were MY wake. The family knows you are there for them, but you still get a much-needed mental-health break.

You brought an ice breaker and conversation starter. You probably saved the day for a lot of people who wouldn't know what to talk about otherwise. I've never had any negative comments or looks (that I'm aware of, anyway) when I break out my knitting.
