You see a kid in a sweater and you recognize the stitches! LOL
We went on a hayride today and the kid sitting across from me had the cutest pumpkin sweater on. The sleeves, hem and neck were all rolling and I thought to myself "self, that there's stockinette stitch. See how it's rolling?" LOL
By the way does anybody have a pattern for something like that? It was orange with a jack o lantern face in the middle of the front (in black) and it had a high neck that rolled down that was done in green yarn. I'd love to make my kids one.
My son outgrew a store-bought sweater, and before I donated it, I scanned the instarsia tow truck on the front so that I can duplicate it for another baby! What baby? I don't know, but I thought the tow truck was cute!
Knitters just think differently about the world!

I followed a woman out of an ice cream store to see her felted purse!! I don't think she noticed I was following her. It would have been funny to explain my fascination with her purse! "No, I'm not interested in robbing you, I just want to see your purse to see if I can make one for myself!"
I've begun to do that, lol. What I'm really bad about is deadheading or weeding someone else's flowers. If my husband and I are waiting for a table at a restaurant or I'm talking to someone by their flower bed, I find myself reaching for a dead blossom or a weed.
My sister just had a fall party. Her MIL had on a gorgeous sweater that she had bought in Ireland over 25 years ago. I asked if she would mind taking it off so I could look at it. (It was a cardigan). It was beautiful and for a newbie such as me mind boggling. I loved that she had had it for so long. I don't think I could ask a complete stranger to see a sweater.
I'm not shy about asking about sweaters and whether the person inside the sweater made it. Yesterday we were at a huge craft show near us and we were walking along when I noticed felted purses for sale! Two of them. Of course I'm delightedly squealing "Booga Bags!!" Luckily nobody called for the guys in the white coats......... samm
