Laurie, you're not crazy...

...or else, I am, too.

So that Laurie doesn't feel so alone in her taking pictures of knitting on tv craziness, I give you these images I took of the Antiques Roadshow a couple months ago:


That woman is making one smart use of her time waiting in line. Here's hoping her antique was worth millions, so she can afford lots of cashmere yarn. ;-)

Did you ever see the Antiques Roadshow episode in New Bedford, MA? Because New Bedford was known in its heyday as a whaling town, the show featured several scrimshaw pieces from a local museum. The items prominently shown were a swift, knitting needles, and sewing items. The swift really floored me because it still worked!

You know, I commend this woman for knitting on TV. Because while I was knitting away at my daughter's (indoor) swim lesson yesterday, I realized that I'm about the only person I ever see knitting in public. And I live in Vermont! It's cold here. The winters are long and boring.

I'm about ready to start drop spindling in public and watch jaws drop.

Ooo. I drop spindle in public all the time and attract a crowd like the Pide Piper.

I couldn't help but wonder if that shirtwaist dress was the antique she was having evaluated? Seems to me I had one of those in 1964.

I love it!! That's classic. I thought of bringing my yarn to a meeting the other day at work...Hmmm. Wonder what would happen? :)

Well shoot I missed that one - how smart you are to think to take a picture of it (not to mention quick)
