I was knitting before a Joan Jett concert on the 7th. One of the people with our group, whom I hadn't met before, asked me, "Are you knitting because you're celibate?"

I just gave her a really weird look and kept working on my sock. Actually, I think I laughed at her, too. Silly muggles.

For a short while while I lived in Ontario I worked at a yarn store and I would always get approval from knitters when they found out that I knit.  Of course there would be the few that would completely ignore me if I tried to help them or say something like "I don't think you can help me."
I wonder what those (I assume) ladies would say if you refused their help on programming a vcr...

Grey's Anatomy reference! In one episode, the main character took up knitting because she was celibate, and it gave her something else to do and concentrate on. So not quite as random as it might seem  Wink

""Are you not knitting because you watch too much TV?"

Celibacy? Do muggles know anything about the hand and finger strength one develops as a knitter? Plus patience, endurance and attention to detail? AND a true understanding of the pleasures of different gauges?

Honey, we do it with cables!

Crazydoglady, I don't even watch Grey's Anatomy, and here I thought she was a nut ... (Well, I suppose she could still be one. I haven't seen her since then, and I don't know her at all.) I've only seen the show one time, and that was because I was visiting a friend who's obsessed.

Oh, ScotSkipper, it's funny because it's true. I don't even have cable right now I just watch my dvds and such over and over. (I think I have Firefly completely memorized by now.)

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
