You know what's really neat?
When you're sitting in the waiting room at Social Services and an older man is watching you knit the ribbing of a navy blue hat and asks correctly, "Is that going to be a hat?"
Then he asks, "Are you from here?"
After a brief hesitation, you answer, "Yes."
Then he adds, "People around here don't knit as much as they used to. When you go to Ireland or Europe they knit up a storm but here, it's a shame they don't knit much anymore."
Hah! How cool is that?
