How to Spot a Knitter in a News Story
As I was driving in to work this morning I heard a piece on the radio about how people are bundling up for the cold back east. They interviewed one woman and she said she had on an undershirt, long sleeve t-shirt, a cabled knitted sweater, a coat . . . and then they trailed off. Me thinks me hear the tell tale signs of a knitter in that piece. Why? Because the only clothing object she was specific about is the cabled knitted sweater - the rest was just general descriptions like t-shirt or coat
