Some thoughts about knitting while commuting:
1. Casting on while on the train is more difficult than knitting while on the train.
2. I don’t like winter because I can’t knit while walking. Must learn how to knit while wearing fleece gloves.
3. I suspect there are entire train cars full of people who think that I intend to use my knitting needles as weapons. I can’t help it if I have to push through rude crowds of people to get off the train and I just happen to be holding my knitting needles at the time.
4. Dear commuters: if the train is very crowded and someone gets up from a seat, sit your bottom down! Don’t block the empty seat while there are 97 people standing by the door. But if you insist on standing, don’t be surprised if I scootch myself past you to sit. I have my knitting to work on, you see.
