Those of you already upset over my newfound Martha Stewart-ness will be horrified to learn that I took another step in that direction today: I knitted on public transport. That’s right, I sat down on the train and whipped out my needles and knitted all the way to Bankstown. I am not ashamed of my craftiness. 🙂

  1. well hello, GRANDMA. haha, no just kidding! i gave knitting a go last week (tried to knit a scarf) and all i’ll say is that my mum had a great time laughing at what i came up with, and she’s finished it off for me. 😀

  2. I felt like a total Grandma. Although the image was somewhat mitigated by my jamming to the iPod at the same time. See? I’m retro AND modern. 🙂

    I think they do knitting classes in the city at Tapestry Craft. I’m thinking of doing one. Interested?

  3. I don’t think that Martha would ever knit on public transport. (1) I don’t think she would ever ride on public transport, and (2) she probably doesn’t know how to knit. 🙂

    I’m really anxious now to learn. I used to play solitaire on my 1994 Mac laptop while watching TV, and now I think it’s officially died and I need a new television watching activity.

  4. Hee, you’re such a nerd. Actually, you’re kind of making me want to learn how to knit. . .

  5. The new issue of Knitty has a “learn to knit” section. They recommend this book that I think I’m going to order. I’ve got the basic stitches down, but I’d like to make sure I haven’t missed anything. Most of the books I’ve found here in the library have been either ridiculously simple books aimed at kids or big knitting dictionaries aimed at hard-core experts. I need something in the middle.

    That said, you guys should totally try it out. It’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it and it’s pretty relaxing (as long as you don’t try a ridiculously patterned pot holder as your first project and have to re-do it 17 times, like I did). Plus you can see the results pretty much instantly, which is good encouragement.
