So many weird and wonderful misperceptions about knitters!

Here’s a great piece about how knitters and knitting are represented in the media. Some more weird than wonderful. Now if I ever come across the gal in Doc’s on her way home from the ballet studio sitting at the back of the bus knitting a union jack blanket… I’ll know that’s representative! 😉
