I know the feeling. When I go to the doc I take my knitting with me and sit in a quiet area away from everyone so I can do it right and not mess up.
Well 9 times out of 10 someone has to come to the other side of the place and ask me 100 questions. I have to stop knitting and tell them. Once I answer all there questions most of the time they go away.
But theres a few who must sit right next to me and gaze at my hands. I cant stand for someone to stare at my hands while im knitting. I cant think of what im doing. All thats running thru my head is "why is she watching my hands?she cant even tell what Im doing! The stitches im working on are between my hands,she cant see there. Please go away so I can work on my item!"
So needless to say I dont get anything done 9 times out of 10.
There was one time tho where I was happy to show someone what I was doing.
This woman came up to me in the docs office and said her granddaughter asked her if she could ask the lady with the yarn a question. So I told her sure!
The little girl,maybe 6 years old, asked me "what is that pretty thing your making?" (Its was just the top of a chirstmas stocking.But I was making the top,heel and toe in pink and the rest in black.) I only had the top pink section done and about 4-5" done on the leg section. But I sat there and told her everything I was doing!
She had a smile on her face the whole time! She was learning crochet at the time from her grandmother. The grandmother told me she was raising her and that the girl loved watching anyone whos making something with yarn! But I was the first person she had ever wanted to go ask a question to! I was sooo happy! I Think she will be a knitter or crocheter when she gets older! You know we might be knitting one of her patterns one day!
