No project! (I know, you heard that line a few days ago.)  So I grabbed some yarn and my book on my way out the door, figuring inspiration would hit me one way or another.

The Newsweek also in my bag didn’t stand a chance.  I was a few rows into a Concert scarf, (Fleece Artist, very soft Wool Silk, one skein will be plenty, I’m 20 g out of 100 and 15″ into it), sitting in the exam room for a quick appointment to catch up on some old questions and fill Dr. R. on where things have been since the last surgery.  Waiting…

…And he walks into the room.  Looks down at my hands. “You’re knitting. This is such a surprise.”

I think he’s on to me.

Tell him knitting is good for you and ask for a prescription for yarn!

My dr. saw me knitting baby socks and now he wants a pair. I said yes, but only if he could fit his feet into the same size! LOL!

My primary MD has learned to gauge how I feel by the complexity of what I’m knitting…plain vanilla socks is an alarm in her head that I just can’t concentrate.

From the picture I’d say you are doing pretty well!

It’s so nice when they are perceptive. I knit socks everywhere. During all meetings, while strolling around, waiting in line for anything, you know. Up at Street Vibrations in Reno, a friend wasn’t quite sure if it was us across the street (in a sea of motorcyclists, just try to find the tall, bearded guy in leather, with the shorter wife…), but then he saw my knitting and knew. What a surprise indeed!

Ooh, beautiful! I must pull out your book now. I’ve been thinking about a project for a friend’s birthday…

By the way, I forgot to be specific that I’d used American size 8 needles for the original, and it somehow ended up in the book as 8mm, extrapolated to US 11, which was a mistake. I’m using US 9’s for the current scarf.

My doctor walks into the exam room and asks “What are you working on now?” as her greeting to me.

I’m wondering if he didn’t see you knitting, he would have said, “OMG Alison, you must be sick!”

A good sense of humor is a healthy thing, isn’t it? hihihi
