anti-social lunch knitting

there are a few lovely ladies here at work who knit, and they get together every friday and knit by the fireplace (in the cafeteria, but still....there's a fireplace!) i got an email inviting me to go, which is so nice of them, very sweet. but i haven't gone yet, and i feel bad! but i really kind of like taking my lunch and knitting by myself and listening to my ipod. i'm such a loner knitter. is that bad? i'm sure if i went i'd like it, and i should really just go.

but i like sitting by myself and listening to keith and chemda :) i always sit in the same spot and see most of the same people walking by everyday. only a few of them look at me funny, i realized that i'm pretty covered in yarn. today i had on my hat and clapotis and was working on a sweater. they're just jealous! ;) here i am in all my lunch-knitting glory.

and because i love these and i have too much time on my hands!.......

I like social knitting at times, but I often prefer to knit alone. I need solitude at lunch to recharge for the afternoon.

I was inspired by your meme and posted my own list here:

Haha--you hate weiner dogs too?! People that own those are a breed of their own, let me tell you! :)
