Tonight at SnB a woman showed up looking for people to be in a photography project of hers. She heard that knitting is hip and happening and she wants photos of people knitting. Specifically she wants photos of people who don’t fit the knitting stereotype. You know, grey haired old ladies with long sticks. Well, none of us in the SnB group fit that stereotype!
We immediately volunteered our 2 boys in the group. I think they went along with it because 1) it’s kind of flattering and 2) they know that they stand out in a knitting crowd, being boys and all. She then asked the one Dutch girl who came tonight if she would volunteer. And then last, she showed up at MY shoulder asking me if I wanted to also join. ME? Why me for heaven’s sake? She said I had a twinkle in my eye. That’s the same thing the woman who officiated at the wedding said. Come on. That’s just a nervous twitch. Don’t people know that I giggle when I’m nervous? It’s not that I’m that happy. I’m just insecure.
Anyway, she gave me her card and I gave her my email address. She’s going to email tomorrow to make a date to do this photo thing. I’m pretty busy. We’ll see what happens.
p.s. I stole this photo from my Mom’s blog. This is me sitting in her back yard 10 days ago, knitting Ishbel. It’s hard to believe I was enjoying such weather (and such nice company) just a few short days ago. It’s rainy and windy here in NL. It’s a shock to the system.
