(wanted to push myself, knit something out of my comfort zone)
Woman sitting next to me on the couch is pulling spectacular beaded lace shawls out of a tote bag.
Many lace shawls.
Shawls so beautiful, so delicate, that for a moment you are wondering why American Apparel bothered re-inventing the hoodie.
I have a lot of time to knit in my job.
I am a mechanic.
I work in a factory.
I sit and knit waiting for the machines to break.
Sometimes I am on call. I sit at home knitting, waiting for the phone to ring.
I guess it makes sense. Someone has to fix those machines.
Never occurred to me it would be a knitter.
