I've got a pullover hoodie with a front pocket that is the perfect size for storing a hat-in-process along with a ball of yarn. Whenever I had to wait, I'd just reach in and start adding to the hat. It made waiting for the bus so much more tolerable.
While on the bus, I finally got a seat and immediately pulled out the needles. Two older gentlemen came over and sat near me and asked, "Is that pretty easy once you get the hang of it?" and we proceeded to talk about knitting, the South, and San Francisco. I let them in on how cheap it is to knit your own hats, the many varieties of yarn available, and other interesting tidbits while the front of the bus stared at me knit.
I was taking the bus to Queer Knit Night. It was an enjoyable evening! I got to work on the hat and the gloves. I'm a bit worried about the glove... I made some mistakes early on that make it look a bit sloppy, so I might just rip it and start over. Ugh.
