    Take it as a compliment. If someone says you are sexy and that your being a knitter makes you sexy, I say yay. She must have thought that being a knitter made you sexy or that you were even sexier cuz you knit.

    awww 🙂 what an awesome thing for her to say! x

    Having being there, I can say I was amused and horrified at the same time. It was definitely meant as a compliment, but still…

  4. Kimberly Says:

    Oh yeah and one funny thing, the yarn you sent me came all the way here to a nearby town, got misdirected, sent back to pittsburg and is making its way here

    well, in truth, it’s probably the only time you’ve been objectified *to your face.* ya know?

    really? the first time you’ve been objectified?? I guess women are more used to it….We should all wear buttons “Sexy Men Knit” – how cool would that be??

    Yeah… I was told I should be a sexy face for knitting a couple of days ago. Made me feel real awk like.

    I guess it goes to show that younger people are knitting?
