I took a friend to hospital yesterday for an outpatient procedure, and as we were going to be a few hours I took my knitting along to pass the time away. I have never knitted in public before so was very self concious about it!!!
Anyway, there I was, knitting away, and an elderly Chinese lady came up and sat next to me. A fellow knitter!!! She apparently always took her knitting out with her, and got it out to show me what she was knitting. We had a lovely chat about patterns and yarns, where to buy them here in Singapore and it was great!
What made it especially special is that I have generally found whilse living here that elderly Chinese don't really like sitting next to us foreigners, let alone have a chat. So I thought it was fantastic and it really made my afternoon
