Knit and the whole world has an opinion...

I knit on the BART train, I knit standing in line, I knit at sidewalk cafes... and it seems that folks are more than happy to strike up a conversation with you... either they're knitters themselves or they're admiring the piece you're making...

Knitting seems to help bring down social barriers to talking to strangers and I think it's cool. A nice smile or compliment is a little thing but has such a great impact on one's disposition. It can really make your day.

It's also nice to share one's experience with knitting... not to sound too New Agey and hippy-dippy, but it is very gratifying to be reknitting the social fabric in our community through a simple and satisfying craft.
