So as I mentioned the other day I went away for the weekend. I was going up to Glasgow for a Hen weekend, as I was going by train and I thought this would be a great opportunity to get some knitting done. Especially after having (lovely) visitors for a week. Now I have a couple of things ongoing at the moment so I had to think hard about what I wanted to take. I decided it had to be something easy to follow, nothing too big and something that I would enjoy doing. I can't actually tell you what I decided to knit as its a present for someone. But I can so you an "in action" photo!
I have to admit I was kind of disappointed with knitting on the train. Don't get me wrong it was great to have uninterrupted knitting time and an excuse to just sit and knit but I had expected more of a reaction. The train was even quite busy, both on the journey there and on the journey home. Only one person spoke to me about my knitting, a very nice steward on the train. He said he hadn't seen anyone knitting in a long time and it was lovely to see it! He then told me about his mum who also used to knit. It was lovely and I enjoyed talking to him but I was expecting more encounters like this!
Have you knitted in public? Did you get more reactions? I would love to know so please leave a comment!
Happy knitting xx
