Outlaw knitting

Ok so the closest thing to outlaw knitting for me is at work.......I am Homeland Security for the Maine State Ferry Service. I live on an island and we have 3 ferries a day and it takes an hour to get to the mainland, and then an hour to get back to the island. I work on the island, I am armed with, a punch (think scrapbook punch) to validate tickets, a walkie talkie, and a florescent vest with reflectors. I arm myself with KnitPicks Options needles. Any terrorists come on my island I will stab them in the eyes with my pointy sticks. I enjoy my job for the most part because for half an hour at each boat time I get to socialize, and then for the other 5 hours of the day I knit! Woohoo, I have people asking questions about the projects all the time. So even when Homeland on the planes won't let you take your pointy sticks on planes, I am armed and dangerous on a teeny tiny island in Maine with mine! Watch your eyes!!!

Woohoo!!! Protect Maine with your pointy sticks!!! I mean protect the whole country with your pointy sticks, but especially Maine! It's very knitty there!

I live in Michigan, and because we wouldn't feel comfy going anywhere warm on our honeymoon, the Ogre and I went to Maine!!!
