Ok, so since I've started these socks on two needles (I swear that could be a song) -- but I digress. Anyway, since I've started them I'm obsessed with finishing them. I went as far as taking them in my purse with me along with a copy of the pattern so I'd never be without and that way I can finish a row here and there. LOL One of my friends saw the knitting in my bag and rolled her eyes... Hehe...
So my point was (and I did have one)... that I was a bit early picking my son up from school yesterday. So I'm standing in the hallway outside his classroom waiting and I figure: Hey! Why not knit??? -- so out come my trusty needles with my 1/4 done socks on them and I begin to knit away while I wait. Suddenly, a whole load of 5-6 year olds come out of the classroom to get their bags off their hooks and as they are walking by, the first one stops dead in her tracks. Behind her, the next one stops, too -- and just stares. Suddenly the whole line of kids has slowed to nearly a halt because they're all staring so intently at what I'm doing. LOL
But here I was, too focussed on what I
was doing to even notice. So it wasn't until my son came up to me to give me his papers that I realized I'd held up the entire class because they were all just so mesmerized by what Austin's Mum (that's what they call me -- "Austin's Mum") was doing. :rofling:
It was quite a sight to see, all these kids walking so slowly... not watching where they were going...tripping over each other. I'm not sure if it was because they thought I was really cool or just really strange!!!
