What is it about knitting that you meet the nicest people?
We had a discussion about this last night at the LYS, because our significant others just don’t get why we go to the store to knit. It’s because of friends. Friends that come in all shapes, sizes and ages. Friends who just like to knit socks, those who are new to knitting and are willing to try anything, friends who know so much about our craft of choice that they will forget more than you can ever learn in a lifetime. Friends who just make you smile when they walk in the door of the shop. Friends who are going through a hard time. Friends who make you laugh so hard that your face hurts, or you snort your drink up your nose. Friends who were very quiet and reserved when you first met them, and then you find out that they have a wicked sense of humor and can make you laugh hysterically when they describe how to use a Nastapena to wind yarn. Friends who make you rip. Friends who will join you on knitting trips. Friends you have met through blogs.
And they all appreciate your abilities, your unfinished, and your finished objects. Knitting just attracts the nicest people. To all my friends, thank you.
