I felt so inspired with the response to my blog post about the stigma of crocheting in public….and I truly mean inspired! I would not have done what I did otherwise…. I did it! I crocheted in public!
I tried to be quite discreet as I was a little nervy and put the two necessary balls of wool into my handbag (if I was going to do it I was going to do something proper!) and yeah I did tuck myself away abit , it was either sit slap bang in the middle of everyone or over to the side on a little sofa! We were at the jungle gym so people kept walking past me, and don’t get me wrong I did go and play with Fin, but every now and again I’d scoot off and leave him to it and do a little crochet! So hurrah for crafting in public! I didn’t get any obvious ‘she’s a crazy lady looks’ and to be honest once I started I didn’t even feel self conscious. I also figured there was less chance of my handbag disappearing (which surely it wouldn’t) if people had seen it’s full of wool!
Here’s the picture as proof – don’t really like taking pics in this sort of place- but proof was necessary! xx
Would love to hear some more stories of your public displays of crafting!! xx
