My boss was in my office yesterday and my socks were showing because I had legs crossed with my ankle up on my knee. He admired my socks and they happened to be a pair that I'd made and I said so and offered to make him a pair. His reaction was so funny. First let me say I love my boss, he's a great freind and he has helped me out a great deal over the years but he was so taken aback by the fact that I knit. I thought he knew, I talk about it all the time. I'm never, I mean never self conscious about knitting, it's been a part of my life for over thirty years. It wasn't a bad reaction - he was just so surprised and amused. He and my husband are good freinds too so he knows I'm not striaght. It was as if I'd revealed a third eye or something. Are men who knit such a rarity?
