Knitting in Public

The effect of open knitting is to invite social interaction, as I was reminded recently during a trip to a warmer locale for a few days.  It's how we learn about a new knitting group (if I lived in said warmer locale, I would join them for sure), or that the lady walking down the pier learned to knit when she was a new bride 50 years ago, or that another woman walking down the pier considers my knitting "constructive leisure".  Exactly!  I may have been sitting alone with my yarn and coffee on the pier, but I was not lonely.

Another view. I was sitting there in shorts, knitting.  Outside.
