People tend to think it's "really cool" and also really funny that I knit. I guess it's because I'm nineteen and have a bunch of piercings or something. I've been sort of ignored by salepeople at LYSs because I guess they don't think I'm a "serious" knitter. :rollseyes:
But I made a friend at work through knitting!
Well, sort of. I mean, she was my buddy for having to fix all of my problems before that, anyway. :D But she just taught her daughters (around my age) how to knit over Christmas, so she just started again. She gets properly excited over the pictures of my projects that I email to my dad (I work with him, too).
What's REALLY cool is having your friend/roommate be a knitter, as well. She understands all of my knitting woes and my exciting stash enhancements. :D
