I haven't gotten any dumb comments yet, but this lady asked me if she could feel what I was knitting once. :thinking:

At Border's, I got "You must not have any kids at home"

Now, I don't, but what kind of stupid comment is that? Like a mom can't have a break?? :rollseyes:

Why do you knit socks? Wouldn't it be easier to just go buy them? :rollseyes:
Some people never get it :?

"Did you make the sweater you're wearing?"

Grinning, "Yes, I did."

"You did not."

These are from students who know I knit. They ask me about every single sweater I wear, even ones from Lands End that are made from the thinnest thread.

I've also gotten the response, "No f***in' way!" and "Bulls**t!"

It's just their way of showing appreciation for beauty.
