I had nothing ready. No portable project. My doctor appointment was in 40 minutes, c’mon, just pick something! I grabbed my one-and- only-ever cone of now-sold-out lavender Piuma and needles–no stash hoarding for you! Use it!

I got there early, signed in and cast on.

They apologized that the doctor was running 45 minutes late; I motioned towards my yarn and said, You’ve got twenty hours before I get antsy. For that matter, if someone’s appointment is after mine but they’re in a hurry they’re welcome to go ahead of me.

The guy laughed and clearly his day was suddenly a whole lot better.

We should all have knitting/reading/crocheting with us when going for an appointment, shouldn’t we?

I can feel the relief you blessed him with!

Go you!!

I pray the appointment went well.

As long as they let you use the bathroom.

I couldn’t believe it today when I checked in for an appointment today at 10:35 and was told 10:45 was the check in time for an eleven o’clock appointment. I said something and she repeated herself, so I asked if I needed to wait a bit and come back up. She said, “No. I checked you in anyway.” Hubband said I should have asked to speak to her supervisor, since they are about patient satisfaction. Plus the fact I could have just come from a previous appointment on a different floor.

Always nice to make someone else’s day.
When they started getting strict about pointy things on airplane flights, I still took my wooden double points to knit. I figured the flight would be safer if my hands and mind were occupied.
