Going public

Crocheting in public
¡¡Por fin está aquí septiembre!! Adiós, adiós, odioso verano. Y para celebrarlo, una foto: haciendo ganchillo mientras espero el metro. Había poquita gente alrededor pero más tarde dentro del vagón recibí unas cuantas miradas. A lo mejor hasta estoy en un par de blogs por ahí como la rara que hacía cosas con hilos, porque la gente que estaba sentada enfrente tenía cámaras. ;-)

September is finally here!! Bye bye, hateful summer. And here is this picture to celebrate it: crocheting while waiting for the metro. There were few people around me but later in the train I got some stares. Maybe I am being pictured in a couple of blogs out there as the weird woman doing stuff with yarn because the people sitting in front of me were holding cameras. Lol. ;-)

Kar me nominó durante este verano así que aquí van seis cosas aleatorias sobre mí:
Kar tagged me earlier this summer and now I have to tell you six random things about me:

1. Nunca visto de rojo / Never wear red.
2. Miope / Shortsighted.
3. No tengo carnet de conducir / Don't have a driving licence.
4. Adoro los libros de Harry Potter / Love Harry Potter books.
5. Tengo fobia a volar / Have a phobia about flying.
6. Duermo con los calcetines puestos / Sleep with socks on.

Además, hoy recibí este premio para el blog de parte de Libby. ¡Muchas gracias! Dice que lo merezco por animarme a tejer en público. ¡Ahora puedo probarlo! :-D
Por mi parte, se lo doy a Felicity, por sus hermosas y cautivadoras palabras, que hacen que cada pequeño detalle del día a día sea maravilloso.

Also, today I was awarded this blogger award from Libby. Thank you very much! She said I deserve it for finally crocheting in public. Here you go, I have evidence! :-D
I'm passing it to Felicity, for her lovely and mesmerizing writting that makes every little thing of her daily life look wonderful.

¡Feliz mes de septiembre! Happy September!

  11. Thank you so much for my lovely swap gifts - will write properly later but have been so busy with guests this past 10 days.

    If you want to crochet on the metro then why not? Go ahead and disregard any stares - they are probably intrigued and wish they knew how to do it too!

    @Felicity: Thank you. I can't wait to see your amigurumi!

    @Lolita: Somos más de las que me pensaba en el Ejército de los Calcetines para Dormir entonces. ;-)

  14. Hello Alhana,

    So glad that you are getting the hang of crocheting in public. Don't worry about the stares, you won't notice after crocheting for a while, this I've noticed before.

    I was reading this post and it reminded me of this man on the metro train as well. You will have to copy and paste to your browser. It always intrigues me that there are actually men out there that enjoy crocheting/knitting.



  15. That was simply hilarious!! Thanks for sharing it with me. ;-)

  16. Your welcome!

    Kind regards.
