If you haven’t ordered a copy of the 2013 Winter issue of Pom Pom Quarterly yet, you should! It’s full of some gorgeous patterns, and I have a silly article in it called Pints and Purls about some of the different characters you might meet knitting in bars.
I was in the habit of dragging my knitting everywhere I went long before I reached the drinking age, so it seemed perfectly natural to bring my knitting out when I went for a drink with my friends in college. Apparently it’s not as natural as I think it is because, not only do I attract curious non-knitters when I’m out, but I also get quite a few comments about it from other knitters whenever I mention that my knitter friends and I regularly knit in bars!
Do you ever take your knitting with you when you go for a night out with your friends? Do you have any good stories about the people you’ve met when you were knitting in bars?
