Didn't I tell you they would make fun of me !!

Hello everyone !

I had an early shift at my store, and I had a surprise waiting for me on my office door, but I didn't notice it at all until my head cashier Stephanie showed it to me.

Over the past few years depending on my shift at work I sometimes get to work anywhere from 15-30 minutes early. Hey its quality knitting time. My Ipod, coffee and my yarn. My booksellers know not to bother me until my shift begins. Leave Maribel alone ... "she's knitting !"

<----- This is Stephanie, one of my head cashiers and one of the booksellers who have taken up the pointy sticks because of me. She is currently working on a Vogue Knitting Pattern - a cute bag for her mom. Everyone at work thinks I am starting a cult, there are now about five knitters at my store because of me. Bookselling is stressful! So last night while on her dinner break, someone said that she was morphing into me. She has my needles (size 17's) reading the same book I recently finished - The Fiery Cross ( love love love the Outlander Series ) and she had her gladwear for lunch. So they got her a pair of glasses, a cup of coffee and some water and she put her earphones on to mimic my ipod earphones.
WHERE IS THE LOVE??? Everyone was cracking up, they thought it was me ... but I'm chubbier and I have curly short hair. I'm I upset that they see me as this crazy manager who knits all the time and spends too much time with her needles, or the manager who runs the knitting group, or someone who is way too obsessed with her yarn. NO.. im not upset, it's all so true. But there is one thing I know for sure. I am the one who has taught them something so special and pure. The love of knitting and that there is nothing wrong with fondling a skein of merino wool in public.

This post was supposed to be about the shrug I finished... but this was so much more important to share. I promise tomorrow all the pics !

Yay for you! It's good to share (your addiction) knitting with others! I'm always happy to help others learn how to knit. You are doing a community service! :-)
