I Dream in Knit, I Don't Knit in my Dreams



Bus riding is something that I usually try and avoid. The too-close contact, the inevitable passenger conducting a long and boring (or overly personal) cell phone conversation, the mysterious lingering odors (today's ride to Ballard was sponsored by the scent of poo), the longer commute.

Today I did take the bus (car woes!) and started wondering if I could tough it out at least a few times a week. I managed to knit one pattern repeat on my socks. And across the aisle sat another knitter. I like to think she saw me and sat nearby. But I am of course too shy to say hey, whatcha knitting? And then there are the inevitable attention from other passengers. "Is that tatting?" and "Is that a sock? OH MY GOD SHE'S KNITTING A SOCK!" And then someone starts pawing my knits, sigh.

That reminds me, last night I apparently had a dream about Jared of Brooklyn Tweed. Silly, not that kind of a dream! He was walking by and I ran up and started pawing at the cardigan he was wearing, checking out the seams and so forth. How forward of me, right? Heh.

I'm starting to think I will finish these socks for my little sister's birthday next week. Thank goodness they are a smidge too tight for me or I would be tempted to keep them. I am loving them. Every single detail. See that heel? Loving it so much.

Last night I had a dream I was blogging. How exciting is that?

Last week I dreamed that I bumped into Martha Stewart at a park and we broke into Sally Shim's house and helped ourselves to some iced tea. Martha left Sally a note to let her know that it was just us, and my, what a lovely home she has. We didn't do any knitting though...

Your socks look great, as usual, and if you just moved to the suburbs (ha!), I'm sure you'd find the commuter buses more amenable than the city ones.

I was going to write a totally different comment, but then I read about Jen's dream and all other thoughts went out of my head.

That is a really pretty heel! I would totally be embarassed to run into Jared in real life for fear of doing exactly that!
