My Intro

Good day to you all.

I've be an Outlaw Knitter from the very beginning (4 years) and overall my KIP experiences have been meet with good reactions. If anything it's the slight ignorance of muggles that makes me chuckle. Here's a little story to make you smile.

About a year ago, I was having some dental work done. While sitting in the chair waiting for the Doc to come see me, I sat and knit on a lovely Clapotis for my mother. I always have some WIP with me and won't even blink an eye to pull it out and knit a couple of rows. The dental assistant came and sat down...asking me questions about my project when the Doc finally came into the room. He sat down and seemed very interested in what I was doing. When he then commented:

"Gosh, that looks really complicated."

and without skipping a beat I responded with...

"And this coming from a man who works with his hands?"

He went on to say...

"Your right...that was kinda stupid to say."

Sigh. It's okay mister dentist man...I get that a lot.

A humble dentist? Geesh, they always seem to be sort've mean.

Dentist: OPEN YOUR MOUTH SO I CAN SHOVE COLD METAL OBJECTS INSIDE TO YANK OUT SOME STUFF FROM YOUR MOUTH--NO, WIDER, STUPID!

They probably figure most people don't remember anything after the laughing gas.
