I was at the grocery yesterday when the checker at the next station came over all wide-eyed: “Did you make that purse? Where did you get the pattern?”  I explained  the details, and she went on to say,” I’ve just started knitting, and I’m completely obsessed — I even knit at traffic lights!”  I allowed as how that was , perhaps, taking it a bit far.  The checker in my line said, “You knitted that?” so I briefly explained the felting process.  There may be an impromptu knitting group starting at Central Market.
