I had a very Yarn Harlot moment today. I was visiting my Dad at the hospital. He was sound asleep, so of course, I was knitting. A woman came in and asked me what I was working on. She wanted to see the picture and the yarn and everything. Finally she said "I don't think I could ever do that, it seems so complicated!"

She was a neurologist.

I hope your dad is doing on the mend! I don't know if you're at HoCo General, but if you are the pizza in the cafeteria is really quite good. (Voice of experience here.)

Hilarious! I always tell people, if you can write with a pencil then you can learn to knit.

There is a woman that I see from time to time in the waiting room of my son's speech therapist. Needless to say, I always have my knitting. She ALWAYS says "I could never do that -- I just don't have the patience." And I am always tempted to say, "You're right. You could NEVER do this."

ha! that is funny.

i told the yarn harlot story to a customer that came into the shop. all she knits is garter stitch scarves (although i managed to sell her over $200 worth of yarn for such a scarf. heh heh). i tried to get her to try something else, but she kept going on and on about how stupid she was.

after awhile i really wanted to agree with her. ;)
