Knitting can be Funny.

Today I got a pedicure.  My toenails are now a very bright green.  I liked to knit while getting a pedicure, it makes me less self-conscious about my feet.  The women at the pedicure place, all make over my knitting and it does give me a tiny (really) ego boost. 

I was knitting along and doing fine and then, as it often does, calamity ensued.  I dropped a stitch on another pair of the lacy summer socks, I keep in my car for outside knitting.  I knew I would need a crochet hook to fix the mistake, so I packed up my knitting and put it all away.  My pedicurist looked up and said, "Why did you stop?"

I gave her a chagrined look and said, "I can't I dropped a stitch."

She immediately began looking around on the floor, and then before I could stop her she starts splashing around in the foot bath looking for my dropped stitch.  I must admit I laughed out loud when I told her to it was okay.  I explained the stitch was in my sock and not something that fell on the floor.  She smiled at me, but as a non-knitter I don't think she ever got that nothing was actually "dropped."  What she did get was a good tip for being so concerned about my knitting.
