The joys of knitting

Yesterday, I knit in public. I dragged the Turtleneck Tube Vest to Pumpkin Girl's soccer practice. I knit maybe half a row before the other soccer Mom on our team who was so busy reading her GAAP book looked over and chatted with me.

[V's mom]: what are you knitting?
[Me]: a turtleneck without sleeves
[VM]: that's very pretty! [pause] did you knit what you're wearing?
I had my Ribby Shell on.
[Me]: Yes, I knit it last year.
[VM]: That's very nice! It looks machine made.

I guess she *meant* it as a compliment! Haha. The muggles.

That was a nice compliment. Only 3 inches to go on your vest? Looking forward to see the finished product.

Muggles... don't know the value of a handknit object!

Beautiful ribby shell BTW!

I just love your Ribby Shell! So much so I ordered it just now! You used TLC Cotton? It is obviously wearing well after a year to get such a nice compliment, at least that is they way I would take it.
