A Funny Thing Happened

When work is slow and it's a Friday, I often go over to the Starbucks in the building next door for some coffee and a bit of knit time. Today, while knitting with my cup on the table, the very rapidly diminishing ball of yarn popped out of my pocket and onto the floor. I left it there because it was easier to unwind. When I got up to leave, I forgot it was on the floor, and I got about 30 feet out of the Starbucks before realizing I was leaving a yarn trail behind me. So I turned around and re-appeared into the Starbucks. It got a lot of laughs from people I've never met before.

Just stumbled on your blog. Love the socks (and the Starbucks story). I just got into knitting socks and love it.

BTW... I really like your description of Oak Park. I have a friend who doesn't understand the concept of Oak Park (vs "city living" & the "Chicago" address) & may just borrow your description to get it through her head.
