Yesterday, I wrote about a missed opportunity to take a photo of a nice-looking knitted scarf and I swore that wouldn't happen again.
The other day, I was rushing around town and noticed that, despite it being chilly, I didn't see any knitted hats or scarves. Ten seconds after I wished I would see something knitted--I spotted a knitter-in-the-wild. A knitter I know from the neighborhood.
I noticed she was wearing hand-knit socks and I thought I saw some knitting peeking out of her tote bag. But she was rushing, I was rushing--we quickly greeted each other and went our opposite ways.
I then stopped dead in my tracks. D'OH! Another missed opportunity! Surely I could have found five seconds to snap a shot? By then I was a half-block away and could see that my knitter friend was hailing a cab. I knew the photo would be fuzzy -- but I didn't care. This is a habit I must get into!
You really can't see this too well--but her socks are a heathery purple. Maybe self-striping? And doesn't that look like a red go-knit pouch in her tote?
