Knitting TV commercial, did you see it?
Yesterday I saw a TV commercial for yoplait yogurt (I think). It showed a women knitting and wearing knitted items and she says knitting helps keep her mind off food/dieting.

Then her husband comes over and is wearing a knitted basketball shirt and he tells her something like "This is kind of Hot"

It was the first time I had seen knitting on TV.

I thought it was funny.

Yes! I saw it too... pretty funny even if it does make us knitters look neurotic!

Well, all my non-knitting friends think I am neurotic once they see my stash and collection of books and patterns!

I am proud to be a neurotic knitter
