OK, so I usually look askance at these comments about "knitting in public." I knit anywhere I like, public or private, and I have never had a negative experience with it. In fact, I often get very positive comments, or questions like, "What are you making?" So, when I took my knitting into my local brewpub, it was no different. It was pretty much ignored as we all watched Real Madrid win the UEFA cup on TV. Then my friend Chelsea, who works there, started up a conversation about knitting and crochet. She's a crocheter, as are my wife and daughter, so we had an interesting conversation about the differences and the people who value them. A pleasant day all around. I had her take a photo, which got several dozen "Likes" on Facebook.
I like the idea of knitting and beer. I've been thinking of starting a fibre arts and beer meetup in my local community. Probably would if I could come up with a catchy title I liked. I think "Pints and Purls" is overused. What about "Stitch and Stagger" and "Drink and Drop Stitches"? Any better ideas?
