Yes, I ride my own motorcycle. Yes, I have a tattoo (just one Mom - calm down!)Yes, I reward myself with chocolate and caffeine. And yes, I knit. And I'm proud of it. Just the other day I knit in the parking lot of a Doctor's office, in the waiting room of not one but two Doctor's office's and in a park on the way home. 4 KIP's in 1 day! When I'm on the bike, there's usually a project stowed in the saddle-bag. I love pulling up right out front of yarn shops and scaring the blue-hairs inside. I take pride in sauntering in - leather protective gear creaking, helmet swinging from a gloved hand and choosing the prettiest cashmere in the bin. I also work at a race track. A dirt race track.
I'm the Official at the dirtiest corner on the oval; Turn 1 Pit Gate. Several hundred people entrust their safety and their very lives to me each week as I guide them across the clay racing surface and into the relative safety of the pits. And yes, I knit at the race track - every week. But not when I'm working. There's a fine line between being an Outlaw Knitter and just being crazy. I like it that way! Hey, do I get Bonus Points for Spindling in Public too?
