Yesterday, at lunch, I was sitting at my desk working on my Shedir hat and reading Harry Potter book 7. One of my supervisors stopped and asked me what I was working on. I showed her the hat, near completion. She asked me if I was knitting AND reading. I sheepishly replied "Yes." She smiled and said, "You can knit AND read?! I want to be like you when I grow up!"
Admittedly, I can knit without really looking at what I’m doing. I suppose I was born to knit and my hands just know what to do. I can also knit and read as long as something is holding my book open and it’s a pattern I know well enough to not look at too frequently while working on it.
Anything you can do with your knitting that always seems to shock people?
