Knitting in the bus does occasionally draw comment from my fellow commuters.
People seem to be especially impressed by multiple needles and colours, so the dpns and 3 colours of the Lions Corazon mittens have had more than their fair share attention.
There's often a 'wow I could ever do that' from someone who has never picked up knitting needles and is simply fascinated by the fact you can make something out of a couple of sticks and some string (hey, aren't we all?)
That I can handle.
But sometimes a comment will come from someone who is obviously also a knitter.
They'll tell you all about a big, magnificent project that they're working on at home - like a cabled afghan for a kingsize bed all from 2ply (well, for example).
Then it comes: "but eeeek, colourwork! I could never work with three colours at once!! You must be sooo clever!"
What do you say???
To be honest it has just never occured to me to be afraid of my knitting.
I mean, its all just one stitch at a time, right?
I'm only ever knitting with one colour for each stitch.
And if I can do yarn-over and k2tog, there's no reason why I can't do one after the other, yeah?
(can someone please remind me of the above after I cast on for Kirri next week? thanks!)
Here's to fearless knitting!!!
btw, the pics are from our train trip between Denmark and Amsterdam - Mum writing post cards is one of my fave photos from the whole trip, and the other shows my new Georg Jensen ring - we bought matching ones in Aarhhus as a special souvenir =)
