There are afew here an there.. hwoever.. I still get suspcious looks when I'm in the yarn section or the LYS ..
One person asked.. "What's you wife knitting" and I said.. "I'm doing it" and they just stared.. then I walked away.. the local shops, the smalls ones, this is more of a culture shock.. I now knit at the bowling alley.. and don't care what people think..
So welcome.. and when out just do it, it will generate more questions, like "Whatca knitting" and such more than snickers..
