I'm with Mason. I didn't vote because none of those applies to me, except the last, but only to a small extent. Mostly, they either ignore me completely or express interest, as in "What are you making?"
I have had people once in a while ask me if I sold what I make. I usually reply that nobody would pay me what my time is worth to make these things for sale. I've made an article or two for someone who asked, if I had the time and they really seemed interested.
I knit in public for many years. It used to be that I would attract a lot of attention, usually negative by men and positive by women. I have noticed that this has really changed in the last few years. I rarely have anyone comment these days.
DJ I think I could make a fortune to make socks for all people who asked me after seeing me knitting my own socks to make a pair for them. But anyway my collegues are used to see me knitting during the lunchbreak
I hardly ever knit in public - it might look as if I was desperate for attention! That's how silly I am.
I'm afraid no one notices! I hate being ignored!

I guess I really don't care lol! There are a gamut of reactions, always positive, some questioning if I know what I am doing, but as before, I really don't care. It is always educational lol!
None of the above. I knit in truckstops all over the country and the vast majority of the reactions I get are quite positive.
