It's not a hat

For all those people who have seen me knitting lace in the round;

For all those who think knitting on a circular needle is weird;

For all those who have asked me, "Is it a hat?";

For all those who think my pile of lace is a baby blanket;

For all those who have asked, "How long does it take to make that?";

For all those who tell me, "That's beautiful, what is it?" ...


I say to you:

It's knitting, not crochet.
It's about as weird as brushing your teeth.
It's not a hat.
It's not a blanket; it's a shawl.
It takes as long as it takes.
Thank you. I like it, too. It's lace.

Hee, hee! I'll have to use those lines myself. People always think I'm making a bag when they see me knitting a square baby blanket from the center out on a circular needle in the round. lol

Lol, it does look like a hat. The yarn is completely edible! Beautiful stuff.

Stunning, gorgeous, can't wait to see it complete and blocked - when it's time, of course!

I think I'm having Deja Vu. LOL. Your shawl is looking really great and I may just print out those responses on little cards so I can just give them out as needed :-)
