Did you see this feature item on BBC news page – “Knit Socks And other things Muscovites do in epic traffic jams”? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21230876
One lady knits – amazing. Anyone else knit in traffic jams?
I’m happy to say that I don’t generally have to sit in traffic for long enough to knit and I’m not sure what kind of reaction I’d get from the local Police if I did, but I suspect it wouldn’t be good (no pun intended). There’s a thought for dealing with road rage, though…. Make ’em all learn to knit.
I can just see it now….
“Hey, move it!”
“Ok, ok, just a minute – I want to get to the end of the row”
“What are you knitting?”
“A rabbit for my niece – it’s really cute…look”
“Aww, sweet. Can I have the pattern?”
“Oy, move your asses, you two – some of us need to get to work!”
I do knit on holiday sometimes, luggage allowance and weather permitting (I don’t like sitting with what is basically a warm woolly rug on my knee if it’s really hot.) Maybe I need to learn to crochet better – those hooks are much smaller to pack.
Anyway, I shall think about taking my knitting with me more often now…
